Punt

by Artizani

Two Oxbridge undergrads descend from their ivory towers and are off for a relaxing punt. Blissfully unaware of reality and physics the boat drifts down busy streets as they regale and serenade the public.

Over the years one of Artizani’s most popular shows; a unique and quintessentially English walkabout that oozes charm and is playfully surreal.

This promenade performance is based on an adapted electric vehicle which can cover quite a large area if required – it works both as a charming image glimpsed from a distance and as character based comic interaction at closer range. 

The punt also works as the Shakespeare characters, reading sonnets in Venice or as the  “Ferry over the river Styx” – for Halloween or any ghoulish event - dressed with cobwebs and creepy crawlies, with Death standing in the stern and his faithful servant at the helm, the boat drifts along on its way to the underworld.
