An introduction to cabaret

These are high impact short performances mostly suited to indoor events. All are choreographed to music. Performers would need a dedicated performance space and we would check certain technical requirements with you in advance.

Cabaret ranges from spectacular aerial routines in silks, trapeze, Spanish web, corde lisse, & aerial hoop, to stunning acrobatic displays in contortion, doubles acrobatics & hand balancing, to mesmerising juggling and manipulation skills using balls, clubs, hats, cigar boxes, diabolo and contact ball.

A Guide to shows

Shows can take place outdoors on the streets, in theatres, on playing fields, or in community halls and can run between 15 mins and 50 mins long, with most running around 35 mins. All shows are self contained, which means that the artists don’t need you to provide sound systems or lights (although sometimes the event has these anyway). All shows would have a strong vein of humour and are family friendly. We have solo performers and double acts, non-verbal performances and shows with lots of banter, performers whose skills reach new heights to shows that take place at great height – well at least on 6 meter high free-standing aerial rigs.

Performance space required varies according to act but as guide you would need about 5 meters x 5 meters on flat, level ground plus space for an audience to gather. There is some flexibility in the case of slightly smaller spaces, if we know the space dimensions in advance. When booking a street theatre show you need to consider what is happening around the performance space, so you need to minimise any background noise such as road works, loud music, sound checks, and also avoid spaces near to busy traffic..

An introduction to walkabout

Ambient, mobile performance which is interactive, can be 15 minutes up to 2 hours. Can be indoor or outdoor. Can be stilts, unicyclist, juggler, doubles acrobats, surreal, musical, puppet...

Meet and Greet is similar to walkabout but it is usually at the start of an event and can be based at an entrance to meet and greet guests as they arrive at an event or to entertain them just before the main event.

We also have a variety of themes, here are a few: Enchanted, Fairytale, Carnival, Maritime, Medieval, Victorian, Moulin Rouge, Glamorous, Autumnal, Halloween, Christmas, Fire & Ice.
