    "Benedikt Karl is a trained clown artist and showed wonderful technique on stage - so much that jaws dropped and stunned audience members forgot to breathe. He also evoked laughter, better yet hearty laughter, but the show's great strength wasn't that but how enjoyable the switch was between funny and tragic." - Silja Aðalsteinsdóttir, tmm.is Fréttablaðið: * * * * Sincere and hard working. - Elísabet Brekkan

        • What is it?: A man wakes up. He is stuck in a box. The box is somewhere, maybe a factory? He finds a way out of the box but he can't find a way out of this place. STUCK is a non verbal Chaplinesque performance. It's about being human and finding the funny side of every crisis.
