Lobster Quadrille was formed in London. We are Alasdair, Firdaws and Paulina from England, France and Mexico. We met doing bits of comedy and theatre around London after studying English at Bath University and product design at Central St Martins respectively. Alasdair was the star of last year’s sellout performance “ King Lear With Sheep” (****The Independent). Firdaws’ project- Homemade Schizophrenia, a set of impractical cutlery was a feature in Dezeen and Damn Magazines and Paulina’s Excessively long shoes designed to make commuters slow down were featured in Dezeen and Wired.
We have performed at various London venues including The Jamboree, The Others, Rich Mix 14 Bacon St and The Cat's Back as part of the Wandsworth Fringe 2016. We have also performed at Radio Golden, Conegliano, Italy and So Gymnase in Paris, France.
We are currently studying at the Philippe Gaulier school in Paris and again will be taking part in the Wandsworth Fringe this year where we will be working on “Carabet” and previewing ready for Edinburgh.
All our work has focused on distorting reality and over the last year we have used our theatre and design work to create a show which gives a surreal, surprising and unique theatrical experience.
