Lasso & Knife Throwing: Energetic Engineering – UK

Energetic Engineering are a dynamic circus and street theatre performance company based in the UK with over 10 years experience. They have consistently provided quality performances to a wide range of audiences. With their own quirky style they win the hearts of the audience and inevitably earn their laughter and applause.

Acts Available Include:

Les Femmes Fatal:
All the way from Las Vegas via Slough. The glamorous and professional Milly has to make do with the nervous and excited Janice, the stand-in assistant who lives next door, who is making her stage debut and really needs a nervous wee! The combination of nerves and excitement make for an unusual and highly dangerous show. Hilarity ensues as warm hearted Janice is led through a show of dangerous pursuits for which she is not quite prepared.

Highly engaging and ridiculous with fire stunts, broken glass, knife throwing, audience participation, bad magic and sandwiches.

Femmes Fatal has consistently delighted audiences from the UK , Ireland , Belgium and Slough. Recently seen in at the Four Season’s Hotel in Park Lane, cabaret in the West End at Café De Paris and on streets all over the UK, Belfast, Dublin, Waterford, Belgium and Slough.

Calamity Jane:
Yee Hah! Hot foot from the saloon bars of the wild west country, well, the dog and duck actually, comes our rootin tootin cowgirl Calamity Jane with her trusty steed Lightnin. They tried to turn her into a lady but she just wants to lasso, drink shots and throw her knives, surely not the safest combination! It will soon become clear how she got her name!

She ain’t no lady but fancies Wild Bill. She’s been practicing her line dancing lasso to Dolly Parton to impress him! Run for them thar Mendip hills if she gets her knives out! She’s as sassy as a buffalo, as accurate as a blindfolded mule, has the charms of a mangy coyote and is usually as drunk as a skunk.

Don’t laugh or she might shoot you!

”The Eggs were fantastic and really entertained the (relatively small) crowds, as the event was indoors and the weather was so sunny!”
-Neon Events & Marketing Ltd

“Well done for Friday - that was a great show - and for an audience of about 3,000! You two were very talented.”
- Avanti

"Energetic Engineering have once again combined excellent character comedy with circus skills to great effect. This piece had audiences laughing, smiling and looking on in amazement throughout. This is a stylish, witty act with characters that audiences really warmed to which works equally well on both the stage and the street."
- Cirque Bijou

“As always, Energetic Engineering presented a high-energy show, which was very well received by a very large audience. The audience number well exceeded our expectations and the company were able to share each moment of the performance and kept everyone of all ages engaged. Les Femmes Fatal was the first performance to the large audience and had the job of engaging everyone and preparing them for an evening of outdoor theatre - which they did with their feast of fire, knife-throwing and comedy.”
- Peterborough City Council
