Flabbergast announces it's new ASSOCIATES



Flabbergast is immensly proud and excited to announce six new associates who will form the core of its newest production

The Swell Mob in London 2019



Submerge yourself in the delights of our 1800s taproom; dance, sing, gamble, and cheat through this decaying world. Swig a London porter and become the hero, or swill bathtub gin and relish in the carousel. This night promises to thrill with award-winning clown, puppetry and cabaret. Lose yourself with The Swell Mob.



Macbeth at Wiltons Music Hall



Flabbergast presented their first ever exploration into narrative text at Wilton's Music Hall this summer with two incredibly well attended shows. With just one week of rehearsals we undertook a full production of Shakespeare's Macbeth applying our working method and history of puppetry, physical theatre, and clown; exploring mask work for the first time we created a visceral and vibrant retelling of Macbeth over 90 minutes which included an exploration into live music and soundscaping.


Audience feedback:

'the best piece of physical theatre i have ever seen'
'impressive...90% of plays are incredibly worse with a lot more time of rehearsals.'
'the most brilliant production of Macbeth that I have ever seen....an incredible ensemble...rehearsed for ONE WEEK and absolutely smashed it.'


Future plans include an international tour including Australia and America, a London run in an off west end theatre and national UK touring.



Thank you Edinburgh Fringe 2017


Boris & Sergey's One Man Extravaganza reviews

So many wonderful reviews from this year at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Along with these the show was listed by The Sctosman as
'Top 6 comedy shows to see', 'Top 5 pick of the fringe' and 'Top 5 Weirdest shows to see'.

★★★★★ BROADWAY BABY

"[this] consistently joyful, yet bleak, puppetry extravaganza is exceptional... there is real joy to be had in witnessing these small puppets gone large"


★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN

"a towering moment in tiny theatre… it is absolutely hilarious"


★★★★ ED FEST MAG

"A puppet-show like no other… One of the most creative forms of storytelling this Fringe, and is one of my favourite shows of the year."


★★★★ VOICE MAG

"a superb piece of puppetry theatre"


★★★★ PANOPTIC ARTS

“Boris and Sergey are one of the top comedy double acts of the festival… Bunraku puppetry has never been so glamorous… hilarious, witty, and, on a couple of startling occasions, even moving… you’d be a fool to miss them work their magic yet again"
