Ramshacklicious Theatre Company are teaming up with Surge to co-create a new Scottish version of their latest, epic production Club Supreme. This residency forms the first part of this longer-term project.
Club Supreme Is a playful “hybrid” piece of outsider theatre. Drawing influence from traditional freak & peep shows, re-imagined for a world of today!
Working with themes of Identity and consumerism to explore the corruption, destruction & exploitation of the modern world & its inhabitants!
Club Supreme is the ultimate Roadshow – a group of exceptional people travelling the world as well as appearing online, demonstrating the untapped potential that we all have to reach the kind of perfection that we desire; mind, body and lifestyle all operating at optimum levels through the generous support of the Worhshipful Master and his team of Personal Assistants.
This project spans live and online platforms using a rich mix of physical theatre, clown, puppetry, online gaming, live streaming/film/animation, projection mapping, & surround sound design. To create a curious, profound and darkly funny experience that spans live and online platforms.
Ramshacklicious create bold, contemporary and innovative theatrical experiences in the public realm. Collaboratively, we create work that is accessible & yet subversive, presenting projects that are surprisingly complex, integrating live music, sound design, physical theatre, storytelling, clown, puppetry, film, animation, projection, fire, pyrotechnics & innovative design. Creating shows that place the audiences & participants experience at the heart of what we do.
Surge runs projects to develop street arts, physical theatre and circus in Scotland. We work with artists, performance companies and educators at all levels of experience. We also run SURGE Festival, our annual event, which takes place each July, which brings new Scottish work and cutting-edge international performances to the streets, theatres and unusual spaces of Glasgow.
