Two award-winning clowns present a joyous hour of physical comedy. During the pandemic Julia & Viggo went out to unexpected public spaces in Lambeth to do playful, magical and socially-distanced performances to lift the spirits of local people. These moments of connection were filmed and will be screened as part of the live performance.

The show “We Missed You” is born out of a project between theatre artists Julia Masli (Estonia) and Viggo Venn (Norway), and architect Valeria Burmistrova (Russia), aimed at transforming public spaces into magical spaces, through joyful and social-distanced performances.
