Walkabout Street Theatre
Shifting Sands combines clowning with the techniques of walkabout street theatre, using easily recognisable characters that interact spontaneously and playfully with the crowds. We enliven and animate any event be it a large street festival or small community event. No special performing facilities are required.We improvise with the situations that we find, bringing playful surprises to the public.
We have performed nationally at many festivals and community events including the Derbyshire Literary Festival, Nottingham’s Riverside Festival, Kendal Mintfest, Arts Fresco, St. Albans Street Festival, Abergavenny Food Festival and the Lincoln Street Theatre Festival.
