Beasts and fools

fooling is integral to the dancing of The Outside Capering Crew. I
can juggle and stuff like that, and it all comes into the dancing.

Anything else that needs to be said

The Outside Capering Crew was founded with - and still has - only
two dancers. Our small repertoire is designed to be complex,
spectacular (fake athleticism) or entertaining (cheap gags). We were
formed specifically to perform a single dance on the main arena
stage at Sidmouth Festival in 1996, as part of Frost and Fire, a
show celebrating the British ritual year. We returned to Sidmouth as
a booked side in 1997. We do not expect to continue performing as a
team beyond 2000. We're available for bookings.
Gosh, that was uncharacteristically formal.
….. Adderbury? I live here - is there a choice about it? And no, I
did NOT move to Adderbury just so I could dance with the team. I
don't even LIKE stick dances.
