Slinky Shows

Our Slinky Shows are produced by a top theatre company based in the UK that animates spaces with style elegance and grace. They received glowing reviews during the 1996 Edinburgh Fringe Festival “strangely wonderful, wonderfully strange,” – The Scotsman (Scotland).

Description



This theatre company relocated from Australia to the UK and have now performed in over 40 countries on 5 continents transcending international language barriers with their physical visual theatre. One moment a highlight at Glastonbury – another performing for the Queen’s Jubilee in the grounds of Buckingham palace. Then on to Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, Japan or Canada’s Just for Laughs or being lauded at international festivals like Fete de la Chassepierre. Our Slinky Show has also wowed crowds at any number of corporate events ranging from family fun days to late night cabarets through out the UK and Europe. The Slinky Show has proven that it is ridiculously flexible (pun intended!) Slinkies are a true street theatre/corporate event classic!

The Slinky Shows includes the following….

SLINKIE LOVE (2 person show) – Back in 1995 at Edinburgh Fringe Festival it all started with SLINKIE LOVE. In this 10 minute show, two slinkies discover each other and soon playfully bond taking the audience on a charming little love story where the slinkies stretch 6 metres high, twisting and curling into a ball, thrilling their audience with a playful and eye-catching performance. When it was performed at Glastonbury Timeout’s review – ‘undisputed highlight of the weekend!’

FAMILIE (4 person show) – A compelling atmospheric 4 slinkie show that is both childishly delightful and powerfully symbolic. Performed on a stage or on any paving (not sand or grass) this highly choreographed piece synchopates to a driving industrial ambient soundtrack. The slinkies journey through the highs and lows of being a family crescendoing to a pulsating finale. This 15 minute show continues to mesmerize audiences around the world – a recent highlight being Tao Yuan Summer Children Festival in Taiwan in front of 5000 people!

BIG MOB (4 person show) – A majestic slinkie walkabout featuring 2,3 or 4 slinkies. During a period of 30 minutes, 4 to 5 different mini shows pop up fusing highly choreographed performance art and bewitching and often hilarious audience interactions. This captivating walkabout has become both a festival and corporate staple all over the world and combining bursts of comic energy with gentle fun audience participation. When performing in Holland the response was “very touching and skilled” – De Gelderlander (Holland)
