RINGMASTERS

Roll up! Roll up!

From traditional Victorian style through steampunk and in to the darker and more twisted outer orbit of the ringmaster universe, Area 51 has got the lot!

Often casting one of two brilliant, multi-skilled MCs in the shape of Luke D’Silva or Adam Colclough, 51 have a global reputation for providing state of the art circus entertainment and have worked alongside the greats of the industry over a long period of time.

From Zippo’s Cirque Berserk, staged annually in London’s Hyde Park, to the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai, major A-list celeb resorts in the Maldives and from the stages at the Glastonbury Festival, Area 51 ringmasters have wowed audiences with their hilarious hyperbole and performance skills, while their wide experience lend them to being perfect hosts.

Area 51 have designed, built and produced their own stunning circus shows, winning huge plaudits and enhancing their standing within the art form.

All ringmasters come fully equipped with meticulously-designed and hand-made costuming, together with props to bring all the fun of the fair. They can also be provided with scripts.

NB: We are always happy to hear from clients who wish us to design brand new, bespoke costumes for these characters.

MOULIN ROUGE

MOULIN ROUGE Bringing the glam and romance of fin de siècle France to parties and events all over the world, Area 51’s Moulin Rouge stilt-walker girls are an “ooh La La!” sensation! Beautiful costumes that evoke the Parisian Belle Époque period which was given a shot in the arm with the release of the 2001 movie starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, the Moulin Rouge stilt walkers may not be able to physically perform the leg-kicking can-can, but will add beautiful, sinful glamour. The characters brilliantly evoke the culturally transgressive cabaret from the famous Montmartre club and its appropriation of Japonism, but with a contemporary flair.   GALLERY Views 6 Likes 0 NIKON D90 22mm/ƒ/14.0/10/2000s/ISO 3200 Taken 26th April 2009 Uploaded 20th August 2018 Views 1 Likes 0 NIKON D90 28mm/ƒ/14.0/10/2000s/ISO 3200 Taken 26th April 2009 Uploaded 20th August 2018 Views 3 Likes 0 NIKON D90 21mm/ƒ/14.0/10/2000s/ISO 3200 Taken 26th April 2009 Uploaded 20th August 2018 Views 2 Likes 0 NIKON D90 22mm/ƒ/14.0/10/2000s/ISO 3200 Taken 26th April 2009 Uploaded 20th August 2018 RELATED POSTS RIO CARNIVALRIO CARNIVAL Among Area 51’s most stunning offerings, the feathered Rio Carnival style stilt girls wear gorgeous costumes.

CLOWNING AROUND

CLOWNING AROUND Perfect for any circus themed events, contemporary styled clown costumed characters are always a hit! A set of three visually compelling costumes consisting of two males and one female, this combination always works best as a trio together but they can also be booked separately if desired. They have appeared as far afield as The Maldives as well as various circuses in the UK and if you are booking any kind of circus related entertainment from Area 51 it would be worthwhile considering these costumes for a very strong look.
