London Clown Festival presents

Ella The Great: An Accumulation of Thoughts Things and Circumstance with Richard Melanin The Third (WIP)

Thu 15 Jun 23 60 minutes
Internationally acclaimed clown Ella The Great brings together, for the first time, a collection of playful acts lovingly grown from the UK Drag and Cabaret scene.

In this inventive hour of visual Comedy and Circus, we are invited into a world of possibilities by the enchanting ‘Richard Melanin The Third.’ inspired by silent cinema, mime and the absurd, this “king of clowning brings it every time“ (BoiBox London).

Ella The Great/Ella Golt is a multi disciplinary artist based in London with a background in Circus Theatre and Fine Art Sculpture.  Ella first ventured onto the stages at the age of 7, as part of London’s premiere children’s circus Albert & Friends.

Ella has since gone on to do extensive research in clowning, and performed on some of the world’s biggest stages, such as – Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade New York, Adelaide Fringe, The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Beijing International Festival, The National Theatre, The Royal Albert Hall and more, sharing Joy, Magic and Laughter!
