CIRCUS BETWEEN WORLDS [GAMBLING CLOWN] GLASGOW INTERNATIONAL – CIRCUS BETWEEN WORLDS | 2016 | GLASGOW

“Walker & Bromwich’s Circus Between Worlds brings together a maverick troupe of artists. Starting its life in the ruins of the Iconic Alexander’ Greek’ Thompson Church on Caledonian Rd in Glasgow, the Circus Between Worlds will appear out of the darkness as if an encampment has arrived in town, bringing with it a bizarre and eclectic collection of performers.” For this site-specific project, Ayshia developed and became a perpetual sweety-gambling and absurd clown. She made her wearable sculpture from over 2.000 balloons. Props included fake cigarette and a sweet machine that made a terrible noise, a wig, face paint and gloves. Ayshia drew inspiration from studying the work and history of the Vaudeville performers for this piece.
