The People         Vs

 Ian Deadly

This multi award winning show returns to the streets in a fizzling new format. The idea is simple, Ian Deadly meets the public and the results become the show. The show is built together scene by scene through music, comedy, improvisation, beautiful juggling and spontaneity. We start alone and end together as a many limbed comic circus octopus! Available in English/ Italiano.

Ian Deadly Bio

Ian Deadly: MA in literature and philosophy, circus school graduate, juggler, actor, MC and Compère, Balkan DJ, teacher, flying trapeze catcher, acrobat, mime and above all; street performer. For the last fifteen years his only paycheque has been his hat. Starting in 1997, working all seasons in the streets and squares of Europe, he has no day job. He also has the loudest clap in the whole world.


A juggler for more than 28 years with 20 years experience in the street. Ian started the hard way (making a loss on his first show), he has performed in nearly every country in Europe (still waiting for the first Vatican City Street Theatre Festival) and beyond.

An English street performer who has worked solo and in other groups specialising in juggling and hand to hand acrobatics, he has attended numerous workshops in theatre, mime, dance and juggling. In 2006 he decided to go to circus school in Turin, Italy, Where he works constantly in his "home" piazza.

Every year he embarks on a festival filled European tour, continuously searching for new festivals and new audiences. Ian believes that each new audience and culture brings new possibilities and creates a new show every time.
