Agency and event planning
As programmer of many exciting events around Adelaide, the award winning Fringe Street Theatre Festival, the Rundle Mall weekly street theatre program, and co-producer of The Royal Croquet Club which hosted 36 performance companies in its’ 2015 and 2016 program.
Bamboozled can offer either a curated, fully delivered festival through programming one, a selection of, or all 6 venues with deluxe circus, comedy, music, and theatre shows, or the venues are available for hire, to be programmed individually by the client. Alternatively Bamboozled can do combination of these two options.
These stunning venues have been showcased to high acclaim at Garden of Unearthly Delights (Adelaide Fringe), Royal Croquet Club (Adelaide Fringe), Hoopla Circus Festival (Sydney), Sydney Festival, Brisbane Powerhouse, Cairns Festival, Floriade (Canberra), and countless other events and festivals around Australia over the last six years.
Bamboozled can create something even more tailored, working in consultation with clients to achieve the desired look and feel for individual events. The Bamboozled team are a highly versatile, flexible, creative and experienced collective.
