Camping Delight

Category: Show Related artist: TinCanCompany

Camping Delight is a fast-paced and absurd circus performance, about how bad it can get if
we let the fear of the new and unknown overpower us, seen through the eyes of two absurd normality- imperialist clown characters.
A caravan draws up and two grotesque campers spring out. These stormtroopers then set to
work, frantically conquering and colonizing the space around them. They lay down artificial
grass, set up camping equipment and build fences. They hoist a flag – a nation is born.
In Camping Delight TinCanCompany examine how far we can go, as people and as nations,
with well-meaning attempts to impose our culture and values on others – before our
self-sufficiency and good intentions smack us on the back of the neck like a boomerang.
