I had a great time making these images from a night presented by the ‘Invisible Circus’. In the Old Street Magistrates Court; disused since 1996 and now an occupied building as part of the ‘Occupy’ movement, they staged an elaborate evening where clowns, performers and other such wastrels were put on trial by a judge and summarily sentenced after brief prosecution and defence statements. They were sent down to the cells to perform with invited ‘politicians’, ‘bankers’ and a host of other weird creatures! The tables were gradually turned as things got out of hand, and the power-holding 1% found themselves tormented by the clowns and creatures deep in the bowels of the court cell block. The Invisible Circus produce unique circus theatre experiences in a wide variety of unusual locations, from circus big tops and traditional theatres to site specific and promenade performances in disused industrial and historical buildings.
