Time Out says

Kraken was one of our absolute favourite comedy shows from the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe. It's a ludicrously silly show from New Zealand mime artist Trygve Wakenshaw, whose mind is brimming with childlike silliness. Wakenshaw works in a prop- and largely word-less environment and his physicality is flawless. He’s like a human Stretch Armstrong, contorting his rubbery body to adopt each absurd character. But it’s his underplayed facial expressions that get the biggest laughs. Every innocent grin or knowing nod to the crowd is timed to perfection and he oozes charm. Kraken is a blissfully funny hour of physical stream-of-consciousness and a joyous excuse to embrace your childish side.
