SHOWS AND CABARET

Artizani

 

Specialising in spectacular theatre Artizani are one of Europe’s most stylish and stunning street acts. Combining traditional circus skills, performing at the highest level with a raw energy fusion of music, improvisation and theatre. Highly innovative duo.

 

The Punt:

Two Oxbridge undergrads descend from their ivory towers and are off for a relaxing punt. Blissfully unaware of reality and physics the boat drifts down busy streets as they regale and serenade the public.

Over the years one of Artizani’s most popular shows: a unique and quintessentially English walkabout that oozes charm and is playfully surreal.

This promenade performance is based on an adapted electric vehicle which can cover quite a large area if required – it works both as a charming image glimpsed from a distance and as character based comic interaction at closer range.

 

 

 

Avanti Display

 

Avant Display draw on two decades of experience in outdoor theatre. They produce shows that combine comedy, surrealism and spectacle, to create their unique brand of English street theatre.

Their work varies in scale from the intimate to the epic but they always aim to produce work that is engaging and entertaining.

 

Their trademark has become the use of water, which they use to make both comedy and spectacle: performances that are beautiful and surprising, and driven by an internal logic. All of their shows are imbued with a unique charm.

Barnaby Gibbons

 

Barnaby's solo 35 minute show will leave you dumbfounded. From the moment he arrives as a giant fly, in terminal dive, the pace never slows. A mixture of acrobatics, mime and puppetry, it ranges from the bizarre through the hilarious to the truly extraordinary.

Bash Street Theatre

 

Circus theatre at its best, with off-beat shows like unicycling mafiosos, acro-balancing Mrs Mop and death defying stunts.

 

Shows include: The Strongman, Cliffhanger, The Station, The Lion Tamer and Bash St Bobbies

Bedlam Oz

 

Slinkies are on the move! Big Mob is a majestic parade with bursts of comic energy amongst the crowd. 5 different mini shows are presented during this 30 minute walkabout.

The audience can enjoy a complete "piece" or follow the slinkie mob and continue the adventure. When booked along side our fixed site shows, Big Mob offers a wonderfully flexible combination for any event.

Bernie Bennet

 

A tightrope walker with a free-standing mobile tightrope rig that can be set up anywhere. Berni's highly original act includes such hair-raising feats as unicycling, eating a burger while sitting on a chair and leaping over two life size rubber pigeons - all on the wire!

Also stilt-walking and juggling with some amazing costumes and characters like Skitzo, the three headed hermaphrodite alien, with a voice like Frankie Howard on helium.

Better Halves

 

WatchingMeWatchingYou:

The audience is made into its own entertainment by a man with a TV for a head, a couch potato fascinated with passers by, and a video camera hidden in surprising places…

 

The Better Halves:

A drama is made out of a crisis as two lovers balance acrobatically on the brink of a fiery end. A comic affair involving acromantic shenanigans, wayward children, and a box of tricks, as big as the imagination. Right up your street!

 

Heavens Above:

Gabs and Lucinda, two stilted fallen angels go earthwalk. Culture, shock and temptation lie in wait… Attempts at flight and communication with Number 1 are not always fruitful.

 

The Last of the Mohicans:

A live statue of a national icon – a concrete Mohican punk, tended by Dora the museum cleaning lady and accompanied by Deefer the dog. Audiences are gripped by the enchanting subtlety of the minimalist, standabout theatre.

Shows include the gliding musical Santa, the miniature fire engine, a pirate ship, gliding headmaster, Bishop and Air Ace.

Bruce Airhead

 

Bruce Airhead is a hilarious 30 minute show about a strange relationship between a man and a 6ft balloon.

First he inflates the balloon with a vacuum cleaner, then climbs inside by stages until all his limbs are enclosed and he dances inside the balloon to a lively music track. As an explosive climax, the balloon bursts, revealing Bruce in a shower of confetti as Elvis Presley (or one of several other characters, including Santa Claus)

It's sophisticated, elegant, urbane.....sometimes it's spectacular, surreal, sweaty......always

 

The metamorphosis of a man and six foot balloon.

Bureau of Silly Ideas

 

The Small Job: "Road works have never been so entertaining!"

This forty minute show is a highflying acrobatic slapstick farce set in an everyday work scene, where a group of seemingly ordinary workmen do increasing bizarre things using the tools of their trade.

Very very funny.

Using a unique blend of juggling, magic and clowning, Curious Eyebrows have offer two shows:

Blight: Two people, one in black and the other white, experience a world in which everything seems to thwart their efforts.

The Curious Cabaret: This is an experience harking back to vaudeville and silent film in which the characters perform even more amazing feats of juggling to the backing of a 1030s jazz track.
