Off Kilter


Off Kilter
By Ramesh Meyyappan
A TheatreWorks Co-Production

At work and at home, Joe Kilter has his routine. Some people think Joe is obsessive. Joe would prefer not to be thought of at all. A change in his routine turns his world askew. His life is no longer his own, his house is knocked sideways and he’s off his game. Joe Kilter is off-kilter. Feeling increasingly isolated, his life feels impossible until he is forced to exist in darkness.

Off Kilter explores mental well-being, identity, feeling a little bit different from everyone else and not quite being yourself.

Off Kilter is a darkly comedic visual theatre production, incorporating illusions and masterful non-verbal storytelling. Ramesh Meyyappan is a master of physical theatre, award-winning actor, and internationally renowned visual theatre artist.  His last major work, Butterfly, played to sold out audiences in the UK, USA, Singapore and at the Edinburgh Fringe.
