A modern day sexy, spectacular, melding state of the art technology with whip-cracking energy and featuring a rogues gallery of the most wanted bad-asses this side of Dodge City, the show is set to take London Wonderground by storm as their 2016 opening headliner.
Created by digital circus company Zero Central, The Ranch stars the legendary cabaret performer Empress Stah as The Bad Sherriff with her trigger-happy aerial act featuring a laser shooting forth from where the sun don’t shine to the strains of Light in Places – a song especially composed for the act by Peaches. Stah will be joined by Alternative Miss World Fancy Chance as The Condemned; hip-hop, rapping-tapping dancing twins My Bad Sister as The Bar Room Beauties; international sword-swallowing femme-fatale Jewels Good as The Madame of the Saloon; albino ivory-tinkler Stephen Thompson as the Ghost Rider; daring circus superstar Jo Moss as The Cockfighter; and the indescribably irreverent Mr Teds as The Unwanted.
