The Weirdy Beardies are a playful and unusual act, combining dance, comedy and public interaction into one endlessly energetic and hairy walkabout.
This incidental and physically eye-catching walkabout show brings dance, fun and furry mayhem to everyday public spaces and unsuspecting audiences.
The troupe, likened to a herd of animals, physically explore the architecture of local settings, such as open green spaces, landscape routes or pathways and discreet avenues, interacting with the people, objects, wildlife and street furniture along the route. They create a constant flow of movement, which is arrestingly accessible yet unusual.
Popping out of doorways to surprise audiences, dancing past them fleetingly or being seen from afar in the landscape, the show is an ever changing, live response to people and spaces. They make people laugh and ponder a while on their interactive journey.
The Weirdy Beardies spark curiosity, amusement and puzzlement, and create an unusual and memorable experience for all audiences.
