A “sexy, naughty, wild and hilarious ride”, The Sama Kutra is Fifty Shades of Grey meets Cirque du Soleil!
After endless years of marriage Sizzle and Spark Fandango are desperate to infuse some passion into their wilting relationship. Lost, afraid and confused, they blunder their way through a night of ridiculous erotic antics and kinky desires. Can the secrets of the ancient Sama Kutra save their marriage?
The genesis of Sizzle and Spark as a clown duo began in 2013 when Jacqueline Russell and Jed Tomlinson were both participants in a “Joey and Auguste” duo clown workshop at the Manitoulin Conservatory for Creation and Performance (in Ontario, Canada) facilitated by John Turner and Michael Kennard (of Mump and Smoot fame). Under the guidance of these legendary clowns Russell and Tomlinson quickly realized that they had a natural chemistry on stage and the initial fifteen-minute piece they had created would make a captivating full length show. The show has toured extensively, performing over 50 shows in the last year and garnering praise and accolades from critics and audiences across Western Canada.
