The Crow House - Fresh Air Theatre

The Crow House - Fresh Air Theatre

FREE outdoor performance from Circo Rum Ba Ba..

Circo Rum Ba Ba present The Crow House.

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 the house.

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 choreographed 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 wonderful silent movie inspired show using an eclectic mix of circus, puppetry, musical saw, harp playing and audience participation.

This event is FREE. No need to book, just turn up!
