Dizzy O’Dare

 

In development and ready to tour in 2020


Dizzy O’Dare’s turns the traditional falconry display on its head in this raucous comedy street show!


This show is in development but here are our current ideas;

(to get an update please contact admin@dizzyodare.com)


Until the first bird is seen this will seem like an actual falconry display, only when the first bird is revealed do we see the birds are played by professional fools, dressed as hybrid bird/humans. Each performer physicalizes and takes on the characteristics of their bird with added fun stereotypes of it’s character to play havoc with the Falconer’s display and the audience, each subsequent bird being more mischievous for hilarious results.


Current birds includes; a culture Vulture, wearing a beret and reading Tolstoy, perching on his stand pretentiously, a small dare devil Merlin in flying goggles, hyperactive and whizzing around the audience, and a lazy and contentious Owl, who will not fly for anyone (possible audience interaction as the Owl’s handling assistant).


We are also toying with incorporating a guest performer - a willing performer from another show performing at the event.


Falconry Dismay will perform a mixture of shows and walkabouts (the Falconer being accompanied by one or two birds- to wreak even more havoc across the event).


Dizzy O’Dare are also keen to work with community groups local to the performance to incorporate them into thge finale - The groups will develop their own bird costumes, and work with Dizzy O’Dare to create a flash mob and join in the finale.
