Roving Performances

Roving performance brings the unexpected into daily life. Also known as roving, walkabout or street animation, this art form entertains audiences all over the world, being a favourite at festivals and corporate events.

Born in a Taxi have a highly developed visual aesthetic and a rare ability to improvise and communicate physically with a diverse audience. Being mostly non-verbal, language is no barrier to age or culture. Taxi have a huge array of acts, tried and tested over time in a multitude of situations.

What sets Taxi’s work apart is their understanding of how to build entire events from one single, simple audience interaction. A long history of improvising together means opportunities to convert the ordinary into the extraordinary are never far away.

 
 

Zebras

Watch these aristocratic Zebras prance, preen, graze and dance. With booty to blow your mind, and some dance moves to make Beyonce’ blush. Critically endangered on the African plains, experience the majesty of these rare and remarkable creatures.

Where the African savannah collides with Coco Chanel.

Three magnificently costumed characters perform as moving garden landscapes. Each have their own “garden” personality reflected by their costume, character and garden setting.

Contemporary sensibility meets 18th Century pomp and ceremony!

 
Boat of Faith Hero 1280 x 1024.jpg

the boat of faith

A bittersweet symbol of simplicity, innocence, hope and disappointment.

Take a dreamily absurd and comically surreal voyage in the Boat of Faith, with Mr Curly at the helm. Ask the “direction finding duck” for directions, get caught in Mr Curly’s net of possibilities or be embraced by an angel.

Inspired by the poetry and art of Michael Leunig.

 
Angels Promise 1280 x 1024.jpg

illuminated angels

Let there be light!

Burdened with the safe-keeping of souls the Angels speak and listen only with their heart. Visually stunning, surreal and playful.

Equipped with a sixth sense, they can traverse from the profound to the hilarious.

 
Fops Wall 1280 x 1024.jpg

the fops

High in etiquette and low in morals.

Full of the refineries of ornate 17th century France, bent on the fun and frivolities of a bawdy soiree.

These parading peacocks make your champagne and chandeliers complete.
