The Spurting Man

Category: Show Related artist: Avanti Display

Since 1995 when the show was first created, Avanti Display have presented The Spurting Man on four continents and in ninteen different countries. The show has met with popular and critical acclaim wherever it has played.

The show dissects the unequal relationship between the famous speciality performer, The Spurting Man, and his downtrodden assistant. Performed to Ravel’s Bolero without a spoken word this show is meticulous to character and detail. The pompous “Spurting Man” shows his tricks whilst his assistant, dominated and undervalued, is given no credit for the role he plays. The assistant despises his master. The master ignores the assistant. The bizarre and unequal relationship lays the basis for a series of comic interactions.

Each trick the “Spurting Man” performs culminates in a display of squirting water until, finally crowned and, on top of his pedestal, the grand finale takes place and “The Spurting Man” cascades fountains of water from his body.
