Nathan & Ida (Oxford/Stockholm, England/Sweden)

Award-winning comedy duo Nathan & Ida present TEMPUS FUGIT: a dark, striking tale about repetition, breaking free and running out of time. Tick tock. Inspired by folk and fairy tales and adding their signature spin, Nathan & Ida transport the audience to the tiny world inside an enchanted cuckoo clock where two wooden characters, a brother and sister, live happily, routinely performing their hourly duties until suddenly everything changes.

Now, one of them dreams of breaking free, while the other is committed to repeating the same dance day in, day out – all under the watchful eye of the mysterious, and terrifying Cuckoo.

Whimsical, poignant and unexpected, Nathan & Ida present a dark comedy about time, repetition and discovering what’s “out there”.
