Life Doesn’t Frighten Me

by Viggo Venn and Julia Masli

Viggo & Julia, from Norway and Estonia, have been commissioned to create a video for young audiences inspired by Maya Angelou’s children’s book “Life Doesn’t Frighten Me”. The clowns will explore the theme of facing fear in the world. We live in an uncertain time with a lot of change, and we want to celebrate the courage and bravery that it requires to go into the unknown and confront our fears


About Viggo & Julia

From the winners of Best Comedy at the Brighton Fringe and Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality.
“Venn has a classic physical comedy in him in the vein of Monty Python” – TheatreInTheNow, New York
“Masli’s set pieces hit every beat, leaving the audience in stitches” – The Skinny

During the pandemic when all the theatres closed down, they began experimenting with video-making and digital clowning and we can’t wait to share their silliness with you. Viggo toured with NIE’s “Brothers and Sisters” and Julia toured with “We Come from Far Far Away” and “Spynet”.
