Following two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a European tour, and an Off-West End run, Voloz Collective will bring their smash hit show to the US. Hitchcock meets Spaghetti Western in this multi-award-winning, intercontinental, inter-genre, cinematic caper of accusations, accidents and accents. Raucously funny and endlessly inventive, Lecoq-trained Voloz Collective delights and stuns with live original music and virtuosic acrobatics in this fast-paced whodunnit. Alongside a series of cinematic devising workshops, Voloz collective brings The Man Who Thought He Knew Too Much to diverse venues and festivals across The United States.

The show follows Roger, a Frenchman in 1960's New York, whose routine life is upended when a minor delay saves him from an explosion. Thrust into chaos, Roger chases his would-be assassins around the globe. Winner of the Carol Tambour Incentive Award, The Les Enfants Terribles and Greenwich Partnership Award, and Playbill's "Pick of the Fringe" The Man Who Thought He Knew Too Much is fast-paced, immediate and visceral, igniting the audiences' imaginations with a whirlwind of images and sounds. The minimalist physical style of Voloz Collective makes the show accessible for people aged 6 to 106.

Co-Artistic Director Olivia Zerphy, a native of Vermont, USA, comments: "This show is a wild ride with international and eclectic influences ranging from 60s-era Americana to contemporary British absurdist humor to French mime techniques. We're excited to bring this fusion of styles to American audiences both in major cities and rural communities. The Man Who was originally conceived at The Sable Project, an off-grid artist residency in rural Vermont, so bringing the fully realised piece back to the States, including a stop in Vermont, represents a full-circle moment for Voloz."

The show is co-written, co-produced, directed and performed by Paul Lofferon, Emily Wheatman, Sam Rayner, and Olivia Zerphy, and features original Compositions and live music by Frederick Waxman and lighting design by Jo Underwood.
