Established in 1992, Mischief La-Bas deliver surprise, humour and imaginative engagement in their outdoor performances. Their mission to ‘gently warp the underlay of the fabric of society’ has been developed over twenty years by successfully producing strange but accessible work in a multitude of environments, almost invariably to the public in public places. They welcome commissions for one-off events and mid to large-scale outdoor theatrical experiences.
The company has a wide repertoire and most acts can be described as roving or walkabout entertainment with performers interacting directly with the public. The Flim-Flamilies add puppetry into the mix whilst The Scone of Destiny combines dancing and baking with a giant and ancient scone. All the acts engage directly with the public through humour or are highly visual. Thanks to funding from Creative Scotland, the Company has developed a new project, The Magnificent Organ which combines music, comedy, acrobatics and kinetic sculpture in a 30 minute show suitable for touring small to medium sized outdoor spaces.
