Aerial Antics took part in Buskerfest as well; I showed their Glowfair appearance in a post earlier in the month. A local group, they specialize in vertical theatre, using hoops and cloth suspended from above. Their clothing, equipment, and makeup combines with UV lighting to create an ethereal effect at night. Their act for Buskerfest featured one of their number playing the part of an alien, putting antennae on the other members over the course of the act as a mind control technique- much to the displeasure of the host. Here we have a couple of shots of them during an evening performance.
The following evening, with light still in the sky, I took in another performance from the troupe. The host is at left- wearing a tin foil hat to protect her from alien mind control.
The 'alien' was wearing a full green body suit, looking like what you'd expect out of the proverbial little green men, running about during the acts, putting mind control antennae on anyone in sight, and getting occasionally chased off by the host when she would start climbing. She already had most of the group under her control in what was a funny routine. One of the other group members was up high on the apparatus, showing her skills.
