Selling Points

  • From the critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning Dummies Corp. comes an all-new production made up of a superstar cast of female Dummies
  • Like a Pixar film, the show appeals across generations creating a shared experience for parents and grandparents and their children.
  • A high energy hour of circus, slapstick and comedy.
  • Highly reviewed and in demand across the UK, Australia and throughout Asia
  • No dialogue – the show is entirely visual storytelling
  • interactive and immersive – performance involves the audience as much or as little as they feel comfortable. Performers move in and around the audience throughout the performance

Community Engagement

  • Company can offer, a clowning/slapstick focused workshop and a circus skills workshop.
  • Each workshop can cater for up to 30 participants ages 6+ and lasts for an hour. Participants don't need any prior ability and will leave having learnt some of the moves they have seen in the show, creating a strong connection between the performance, the artists and their own experience.
  • Both workshops, like the show, place great emphasis on creative play and empower participants to carry this imaginative embodied experience into their lives beyond the workshop.
