Vigilant insect experts.
A three, or five act verbal or non-verbal walkabout show.
The Delegates act upon their civic duty as experts to inform and warn the public that swarms of mutating insects is travelling towards the area via InterRail. As the insect swarm arrives, The Delegates take increasingly drastic, and comic measures to protect the public from infection and mutation. The Delegates perform a sequence of acts each building in its intensity using buzzing noises, protective clothing, fly swats and DDT spray (water), culminating in a bug annihilation, a performance crescendo with bug buster guns. All bees are of course exempt from destruction.
The Delegates are delighted to bring their recidivist, ahem, repenting Bankers on Active Community Service (new for 2013)
This show has already been booked for :-
Bedlam Fair, Devizes Street Festival and Mintfest .
The Delegates present ‘Bankers on Active Community Service’.
The Bankers are enrolled on the BACS scheme, in the vain hope they will learn the error of their ways and through clean living , will in the eyes of society, be seen to have possibly turned over a new leaf ?
Supervised by their Parole Officer the Bankers begrudgingly try to to make amends for their financial misdemeanors, by offering audiences an insincerely, apologetic song and their unprofessional cleaning services.
Reluctantly, they offer to iron crumpled t-shirts, feather-dust shoes, and dust handbags to incrementally, and ever so humbly repay their debt to society by offering to clean up as only bankers know how!

Participatory performances in Bath, March 2013
Unconventional sporting participation, it’s all about ‘Yesterday’s Games Tomorrow’.
A three-act walkabout show with audience participation.
The Delegates stupefy the public with a ludicrous, but comically convincing proposition that they are talent scouting for Brazil 2016 Olympic participants. Using carefully constructed stadiums chalked out on the street, they demonstrate and then engage participants in Yesterday’s Games Tomorrow. These are games more commonly known as Tiddlywinks, Paper Scissors Stone, Digital (finger) Hula Hooping and Pavement Darts. The Delegates athletic grand finale is Anxious Irish Dancing with optional audience participation.
NB: The act is more suitable for an urban environment.
