THE ARTIST | Thom Monckton


An artist arrives at his paint-splattered studio ready to create a new work. He waits for inspiration. When it finally comes, things don’t proceed quite as he would wish.

For this artist, every task is filled with challenges — chaos is unavoidable.

An incredible feat of physical strength, theatrical skills and comedic storytelling will have you spell- bound by Thom Monckton’s The Artist. Get ready to step into the whirlwind mind of a true creative, and be wowed by this artist creating a spectacular experience out of the (seemingly) ordinary.

From Thom Monckton and Circo Aereo — the makers of Nelson Arts Festival 2013’s hit The Pianist — comes a show that really will have the whole family giggling in true delight.
