Earlier in July we provided a huge array of performance characters, interative theatre, classical musicians, goblins, fire machines and art installations as part of a fanastical masquerade ball at Kensington Palace, organised by Midsummer Night's Dream!
Here is a photographic slideshow of the highlights from the event's performative/art elements (Photos courtesy of Merial Edwards Photography), including the Flower Ceremony (in association with Crystal Head Vodka), Fire Gateway Installation, Sunken Garden Performance Finale and other performances!
We have just returned from running the production management and set/prop work for Carnesky's Tarot Drome experience in association with Crying Out Loud at Cirque Jules Verne in Amiens, France.
The run featured a remarkable line up of performance artists such as Marisa Carnesky, Rasp Thorne, Vicky Butterfly, Lala Morte, Rhyannon Styles, Bella Kinetica, and many more! The show was part of British Eccentricity season by Crying Out Loud and also featured the amazing fire and aerial performances by Invisable Circus.
We will be creating narrative led theatrical based performances & interactive installations at this year's BoomTown Festival as part of the ChinaTown District.
ChinaTown is a busy, compact place of many lights, parades and performers seems to evolve daily as more tourists take to the square and wait for that gong to dong and the show to start! Venues include the ChinaTown Courtyard and Devilkicks Dancehall. Filled with "the most avin it ska, ska punk, rockin punk, folk punk, polka punk, hell-jazz 'n' roll around town!"
Especially for BoomTown we are creating unique performances over three days entitled Journey To The East (a nod to the popular Journey to the West story).
A chance meeting in the bustling streets of ChinaTown will take you into a hidden world to discover a host of strange oriental characters! Be warned watch you pockets around the Monkey thieves, learn your fortunes from the Wise Old Sage, how much luck will the Lucky Cats bring, join a not so traditional Tea Cermony with the Trollied Tea Ladies and meet Buddha himself to impart words of wisdoms to you!
If you are lucky enough to meet one of our characters you will be greeted with an interactive & immersible experience. Take part in an expedition through the busy streets to find the secret riches of Boomtown! See you there!
We are excited to be running the production for the up-coming Goblin King's Masquerade Ball 2014. Bringing multi-narrative dark fantasy based immersive experiences, rooted in the enchanted tales of folklore and myth to vividly well dressed audience.
The event is now in it's fourth year following on from it's success at the Old Vic Tunnels, Islington Metal Works and SEOne Club. The Goblin King's Masquerade Ball is an experiential party exploring the darker side of fantasy. A grim faerie tale world of the creatures only whispered about after dark, that do really lurk under your bed and not only in your imagination. Featuring promenade theatre, live music, interactive creatures, puppetry & art installations.
