Want to give your event the real wow factor? Why not ditch the formality of a sit-down show for a dynamic and exciting walkabout performer?
Street art has been a popular form of entertainment around the world since ancient times. Travelling Troubadours were well known throughout Europe in the middle ages and Mariachi bands in Mexico date all the way back to the 18th century. In the heady days of flower power, Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendrix played famous busker festivals in San Francisco.
In Japan, marching bands called Chinond’ya dress in elaborate costumes and in India and Pakistan, people still perform folk theatre, known as Bhavai. From musicians, dancers and mimers to fire eaters, folk groups and circus acts, you can still find all kinds of weird and wonderful entertainment being performed on the streets of most major cities today.
Without special effects or lighting to hide behind, walkabout performers rely on their raw artistic talent and performance skill, plus bags of enthusiasm, a great sense of humour and the ability to draw people in. This is entertainment that connects with an audience and makes a lasting impression.
Some events are naturally more suited to entertainers who can move around, such as weddings, festivals and promotional events. An entertainer who can meet and greet and mingle with the crowd is an ideal way to engage guests and create a buzz.
For a speciality act with real impact, a Stilt Walker will bring awe and excitement to any street festival, trade show or outdoor event…
