The Swell Mob comes to London

COLAB Factory, London

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 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.
