Ella The Great: Pomp and Cirque-umstance No3.1 (WIP)
Richard Melanin The Third is a showman. Even in his own home.
He can make magic in mundanity and splendour in simplicity. But he's been saving his greatest stunt for a rainy day...
Internationally acclaimed clown Ella The Great "lights up the stage" (The Scotsman) in an inventive debut hour of visual comedy and circus, which sheds new light on the visionary mind of one of London's most beloved artists.
Pomp and Cirque-umstance No3.1 weaves together, for the first time, a collection of fantastical acts lovingly grown from the UK drag and cabaret scenes.
The enchanting Richard Melanin The Third - equipped with a magical suitcase and a dazzling imagination - brings audiences into a circus ring of possibilities, where the household and homemade take on starring roles.
"A perfect show! Richard Melanin The Third is a genius creation – at once classic and totally original. Charming and hilarious. With exquisite smoothness and detail, Ella Golt has created an engrossing world and transports us" (Peta Lily)
“An act to behold… Pure genius” (GetTheChance)
Inspired by silent cinema, mime and the absurd, this “King of clowning brings it every time“ (BoiBox London)
