THE BOX OF MECHANICAL DELIGHTS
An original walkabout performance for festivals and events
What is it?
Carried by a steampunk-type performer, it’s a coin-operated box which opens to reveal small mechanical characters who go through a sequence of amusing and surreal sequences.
Clockwork and other mechanical whirring sounds plus mechanical music punctuate the episodes.
As far as we are aware, this is an original concept, and quite unlike anything else currently available in the walkabout genre.
Where can it be performed?
Anywhere there is a crowd of people.
It is the kind of thing that festival goers are delighted to stumble across and ice intrigued by for as long or as little as they like. The performer can move easily around the event site with the box to find likely audiences.
It will also generate selfies and videos which will indirectly help promote the event.
