This team of Christmas Crackers are a well established, highly experienced women’s circus theatre company which fuses spectacular theatre with a diverse range of circus skills and disguise.
The company is well known for its elaborate, colourful costumes and painstaking detail to characterisation and creates wonderfully bizarre, offbeat walkabout characters and images, designed specifically for festivals and events.
Acrobatic Ice Elves – A pair of frosted Ice Elves, silvery like glaciers, with pointed hats and snow flaked cheeks, perform an Arctic Acrobatic Balance act with breathtaking contortions and extraordinary counter-balances.
The Snow Queen – A stunning snow white Snow Queen on Stilts blasts about the streets blowing the North Wind into peoples faces and sprinkling them with snow, whilst her frisky Ice Elf is Globe Walking alongside on a huge white snow ball, leaping on and off to frolic amongst the crowd.
The Snow Queen’s Chariot – The Snow Queen propels her icy vessel ( tricycle platform ) through the blizzards she scatters around, as her two Ice Elves perform a breathtaking Acrobatic Balance routine on the front of her chariot.
Snowball Sprites – Two sparkling giant Snowball Sprites on wheels, whizz speedily round and round in a flurry of excitement as the first snow falls for Winter. They are completely rotund as if wrapped inside a huge glittering snowball but too impossibly short to be human. They dance mischievously with the audience throwing handfuls of blizzard as they spin around.
Mother Christmas Sleigh – A traditional Mother Christmas inspired by the Arctic Circle story of Babushka The Present Giver, travels through the streets looking for the perfect reindeer to lead her sleigh on her annual journey of present giving. Her Sami (Lapp) elf, Sunna, picks out potential reindeer from the audience, harnesses them up and gives them a trial as they speed off jingling through the snow.
The Snow Queen and Ice Elf – A stunning snow white Snow Queen on stilts blasts about the streets blowing the North Wind and sprinkling snow while her frisky ice elf, Snowflake, globe walks beside her on a giant snowball, leaping on and off to frolic amongst the crowds.
