SIDESHOW Seeks willing travelling acts

Postby Killbuck » Tue Sep 25, 2012 7:58 pm

SIDESHOW seeks interested, willing and able performers looking for a venue to please, tease or amaze audiences at BM 2013.

SIDESHOW is the new theme camp production of APOKILIPTIKA, and will take on the look, feel, features and activities of a traditional sideshow of the turn of the century-to 1940s period with tones of the slightly creepy steampunkish. Geeks, Freaks and Absurdities in Abundance. The crew has 8 years of experience in theme camp set up and operation, and will NEVER be a theme camp in name only. We are theme freaks.

Interested performers can post here to inquire.

Looking for:

Jugglers
Fire performers who do the odd and unusual
Exotic dancers
Magicians
Marching bands
Acrobats
Circus-carnival based or inspired acts
Self described freaks of nature
...and more.

oh, I shudder with unbridled enthusiasm, whilst parsing every word of the above statement of intent and promise.
Yay, I may yet piddle, as I peruse the afore mentioned criers words and hints at deeds yet unseen, and verily, I say

Fire breathing is great!!!! I especially like it when you breath the fire IN.

Staged accidental setting on fire is always a crowd pleaser.

Most BRC Citizens already qualify under the National Sideshow Association Geeks and Freaks standards. Stay tuned in future, because we may have a Freak Talent Night. You only have 11 months to get ready.

If you can describe to me in 3000 words or less why they call it "Steampunk" I might be interested...

I can do a certain disappearing act, but it generally makes the audience disappear too.

What a coincidence! Look what arrived just this AM....

Also, got a good deal on a replacement (titanium) astrolabe. The procelain one was a little too fragile & moopy for that last round of mad perambulation in deeper playa. Guess when they say "don't go beyond the trash fence" they really mean it. Tho a little hard to play hide & seek out there, it was a fun night out for all! Oh, FLIR cameras = WANT.

Bionic Jim is oddly entertaining. All you do is turn his crank and listen to him scream and writhe in painful bliss!

1. thanks! :oops:

2. It is extremely popular and ridden many times each day! In fact, it challenged our solar/wind array to keep the batteries charging even in the middle of the day!

it's a strange thing cranking the handle, after the first time you know its painful for him. I only cranked it once more (ok twice actually 3). not my thing but it was voluntary
completely unconcerned.

Reheated leftovers in saran wrap don't really interest me that much, but I found something sort of fun and ironic considering the hand crank generating electricity.... and a challenged solar array....

Then, with all the technical geniuses here, what is the possible watt generating capacity of spanking the monkey anyway?

Can you please have a 'shell game' where I can bet all of my useless swag against the chance of winning a cold gatorade? I would like to volunteer to work the crowd as a pick-pocket.

Oh! And you must have a gypsy fortune teller/oracle that can locate lost items.
