This delightfully odd offering is an intriguing blend of science fiction, physical comedy and philosophy of art.

In the agile hands (and brain) of Australian Daniel Nimmo, this combination becomes alchemic, creating a truly inspired fringe experience. Nimmo manages to skewer high-minded artiness by burning down the fourth wall between himself and his audience, all the while rocking them with laughter. Don’t bother trying to figure out what’s going on — plot really isn’t the point here.

Just sit back and enjoy the ride as Nimmo channels three aliens and talks to a little blue teddy bear suspended from the ceiling, all the while ruminating on love and the essence of time. As he says, "It just gets weirder from here." And how can you argue with that?
