'One man's rubbish is another man's treasure. 'You've given us your tired, your poor, your huddled cast off knick knacks, old clothes, tea pots and walking sticks yearning to breathe free once more. You've locked us in a room with them for 2 weeks, with over 20 performers from the University of Roehampton and ALRA (The Academy of Live & Recorded Arts). What we've created must be seen to be believed. People Show 123: The Rummage Show breathes life back into the lost and forgotten.
People Show 123: The Rummage Show is People Show's 123rd production since the company's formation in 1966. People Show has performed all over the world in streets, fields, night clubs, telephone boxes, toilets, parks trains, glasshouses, and even in theatres. People show is a collaborative art form. Each show is the unique sum of the imaginations of the people involved in its creation. The company's non-autocratic ethos is still as relevant today as it was in the beginning.
