Dates and times
A derelict house appears in the middle of the street. The windows are shattered and a keep out sign bars the front door. A furious bird has taken up residency in the chimney and squawks territorially when anyone comes near.
One by one three very different characters arrive through the audience and try to take over the house. A battle of wills and skills ensues with ducking and diving, wheeling and dealing and ingenious plans evolving as each person tries to gain a room inside. Little by little in a frenzy of acrobatics, silks trapeze, hat juggling and slap stick they begin to accept each other and work to create a home, together, within the battered house. The only remaining problem ... the furious bird in the chimney.
A silent movie- inspired show using an eclectic mix of circus, puppetry, musical saw, harp playing and audience participation.
Please note this performance is 50 minutes and will finish at 13:50. Free tickets for all Big Top shows can be collected from the Go Live! Information Point located at on the day of the performance.
