Fabulous Contraptions! is a charming, innovative walkabout act featuring two intrepid time travellers… from the past. The Captain and The Professor glide effortlessly on their Time Machines but are simply confounded by the incredible technology all around them. They seek answers in the name of science from everyone they encounter along the way.
The act provides a not-too-heavy dose of educational entertainment by provoking curiosity in the children, adults and families who are drawn into the narrative. The naivety of the travellers keeps a light-hearted slant on the interactions with the audience.
The Time Machines themselves are a feat of modern technology – self-balancing electric unicycles. Similar to a Segway, but only one wheel. Whilst nimble enough to negotiate busy pedestrian areas, they are perfect for events requiring large coverage and great for parades.
