Club Silly

Peninsula Square and The Amphitheatre at Greenwich Peninsula

1 July 2016

Back

A programme of mayhem from resident Club Silly artists, with work that is both daring and daft in equal measure.

Say hello to the connoisseurs of all things unserious. Club Silly’s chaotic performers are bringing infectious family shows and subversive street theatre to the Peninsula to inject a healthy dose of playfulness to Greenwich Peninsula. Taking place from 3pm to 7.15pm, watch out for a giant foot to guide you to circus acts, side-shows, music, and mayhem.

Featuring:

The Bureau of Silly Ideas

3pm, 4.15pm & 6pm

The Bureau of Silly Ideas will be on foot to spread the word about Club Silly Sessions at the Now Gallery. Infamous for receiving a parking ticket from Wandsworth police, it has appeared on news stories from New York to Nigeria, and even appearing on the BBC’s “Have I Got News For You”.

Mr Ian Marchant

3.45pm-4.15pm

Mr Ian Marchant will perform unique turns with many different everyday objects. He will demonstrate classic vaudevillian feats of skill, mime, physical comedy and there will be plenty of audience participation, all wrapped up in a dinner suit, bow tie and a smart pair of shoes.

5pm-5.30pm

Beautiful Mess weave a story awkward and extraordinary, silly and strange as The Loneliness Street Cabaret unravels before you. Witness the surprising and beguiling confrontation of a bonkers bag lady and a struggling business man, in this celebratory performance fusing live music, physical theatre and puppetry.

WILDCARD

5.45pm- 6.15pm

Stepping effortlessly from the street to the stage, Malachi has since performed around the world at festivals and corporate functions. Entertaining crowds of all sizes and all ages.

Malachi’s shows leave his audiences shocked, amazed and amused. Showcasing world-class sideshow skills though acts that combine the performer’s talent, quick wit and love for catching people by surprise.

Whether he is dislocating his shoulder, lying face down on a bed of nails, giving himself a lobotomy or swallowing a 46cm fly swatter, Malachi Frost is the class clown, who never grew up.

Step Ball Change

6.45pm- 7.15pm

A classic street show from a female perspective.

Inspired by the lack of solo street shows by women, Step Ball Change is a new show which explores ideas around how women interact with society. Featuring classic vaudeville, musical saw, song, comedy and walking on glass, it’s a little show with big impact.
