Stupid Stunt Show
Gasp in amazement as Dan runs the gauntlet of Punch Alley, attempts the Melon Catch of Death, performs the legendary Child Juggling routine and flies through a ring of flames (yes, they are real). Will one of the young audience members be brave enough to take up the challenge of the Moneybox of Doom?
The metamorphosis of a man and a six-foot balloon. Bruce Airhead, with a volunteer, uses a voice-activated vacuum cleaner to inflate a six foot balloon. Then to the crowd's disbelief, wearing only brightly coloured lycra shorts and choreographed to music, Bruce slides his toned Australian physique completely inside the balloon.
Bell and Bullock - Time Trouble
Join our two bonkers boffins, Warp and Weft on a voyage through deepest history. Meet whip cracking Romans and morris dancing Vikings. Thrill to the gravity defying Stuarts and mind reading Victorians. Hear the sound of the universe and experience the big bang. Using a fantastic fusion of circus skills and clowning, magic and visual comedy this family show is full of absurdly funny nonsense mongering and toothsome tomfoolery.
The Bubble Wizard
Will wow, thrill and amaze you. Before you can say “abracadabra”, The Bubble Wizard will make bubbles as teeny as an ant or as large as an elephant. He'll create breathtaking bubble sculptures before your very eyes, blow smoke magically into bubbles and put you, your friends and your kids inside bubbles. The Bubble Wizards greatest trick? Turning adults into children and children into happy children through the excitement and wonder of bubbles!
High-energy shows which are set almost entirely to music, combining superb mime and robotics with a huge range of circus skills. Jason can develop a particularly special rapport with younger members of the audience, reducing them to hysterics with the slightest of movements. He is also one of those rare performers who can appeal to teenagers, as the pace of the show is fast and his skills are at the highest level.
Une Femme Exposé
Is the story of a diva fallen on hard times. After losing her lover, her career, and her wealth, Katinka finds herself transformed into La Clocharde, a homeless bag lady with one objective; the show must go on! Acrobatics, 10 hula hoops, a ridiculous ballet on pointe shoes made from traffic cones and audience participation make an engaging and absurdly comic performance.“Une Femme Exposé”is street theatre that touches the heart, fires the brain and mercilessly tickles the funny bone.
Circo Rum Ba Ba - The Crow House
A derelict house appears in the middle of the street. The windows are shattered and a keep out sign bars the front door. A furious bird has taken up residency in the chimney and squawks territorially when anyone comes near the house. One by one three very different characters arrive through the audience and try to take over the house. Little by little in a choreographed frenzy of acrobatics, silks trapeze, hat juggling and slap stick they begin to accept each other and work to create a home, together, within the battered house.
Bell and Bullock - Cabin Fever Join Captain Bullock and Bosun Bell for maritime mayhem, magic and mirth. Marvel at our maritime mateys with their nautical extravaganza of eccentric experiments, sensational circus skills, and hilarious feats of daring-do.
The Felicity Footloose Show
Felicity Footloose lives in the 80’s and just wants to dance! Watch as she juggles, dances and performs daredevil acrobatics to try and impress her hero, Johnny. She'll even go as far as to hang from her toes and juggle knives whilst upside down. This is a fun 35 minute street show wrapped up in a comedy package and set to a fabulous 80’s sound track.
