The Whale

by Circo Rum Ba Ba

This is just the show to consider if you have a large flat area to animate and feel like having a 18m giant inflatable whale on site for the day. As the whale inflates there will be a sense of excitement in the air as people gather to find out what is happening, where it came from and why?

Over the course of the day the public will be invited to actually step inside the whale and watch some brilliantly animated performances.  Choose from:

The children’s show, The Pirate’s Misadventure, in which a noisy fish wife will reveal the decorated seascape inside and introduce the audience to a shipwrecked pirate with a treasure tale to tell and a real live mermaid with an intriguing secret.

The animated installation, The Mariner’s Museum, in which an ancient sea salt leads visitors around a museum of deep sea wonders. Curiosities include: mermaids’ purses, an arm wrestling octopus, a skeleton with xylophone ribs and bewildering flotsam and jetsam. The audience is invited to touch and taste some of the exhibits.

The whale stories are great fun!

‘Their show was well received and the fisherman’s wife worked really hard outside the whale to entertain the families of children going in. She was inspirational and an unrelenting character, a real credit to her profession.’

— Sharon Scaniglia, Rushcliffe Borough Council
