The Boom Booms

Action Transport Theatre’s Family Festival brings a variety of art forms to Ellesmere Port annually – storytelling, theatre, film, craft workshops, digital escape rooms and more. 2018’s festival brought a unique street theatre group and turned a grey day into one which filled the Port Arcades shopping mall and surrounding streets with laughter. The Boom Booms, with their outrageous non-verbal comedy style burst onto the streets and into shops and businesses. Great communicators, they encouraged everyone they met to join in the hilarity. Star of the day was a pensioner who called her daughter in New York with ‘You’ll never guess what’s happening in The Port!’ and promptly showed her the video she’d captured on her iPhone! The power of Art, eh?

    Thanks,Tricia! It’s down to you that I’ve got going again! It was so dispiriting when the site was interfered with that it took a push from you to get going again – and the work of Sam Hutchinson @ DESIGN/DYLUNIO spending hours replacing photos and text..

    The way you capture emotion is the key for me, a split second makes all the difference and you certainly know just when to action that shutter. I love your manipulation of focus to further dramatise shots.
    Lovely to see your site up and running again.
