Description

This team of Circus Walkabout Acts 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.

Bugs – Two lime green, four-legged, horned bugs, delight the audience as they creep and scuttle between them, chirruping eerily.

Madame Ovary ad Cecily Bumtrinket – Two lavishly dressed 18th century powdered-wigged women divulge court gossip behind their golden fans, polish bald mens’ heads with their powder puffs and generously bestow fellow ladies with beauty spots. They have a keen eye for eligible gentlemen and are ever ready for a dangerous liaison!

Noriko and Akiko – Two exquisite Japanese women wrapped in traditional silk kimonos, bow and twirl their paper parasols, pose beneath cherry blossom and parade to the sound of haunting Japanese folk songs, while interacting in real Japanese with the audience.

The Flying Fox Bats – Two breathtaking Flying Fox Bats on stilts lead their Bat Keeper through the streets, squealing and flapping their huge expanse of wing, as they flit between the audience to the strains of gypsy music. The Bat Keeper entrances with her musical saw, as The Bats lure a member of the crowd into their nocturnal world. Who will fly with the Bats this time…?

Devils – A red she-devil, Satanya, causes hellish upheaval with her forked prong while her fiendish sister, Bella Ze Bub juggles knives, spins fire, and throws diablos high into the skies.
