It was at Clapham Common during the end of 1990 that Archaos was at its peak of success. The show was sold out every night at it was the talk of the town.
Metal Clown - The theme of the show
The original idea was the show was to be an introduction to an even bigger spectacular Transpire et Machanique that was planned for the following year, 1992. Metal clown would have themes of the discovery of Brazil, street life and domestic violence mixed in with the usual Archaos formula of shock, chaos and the contrast between love and violence.
The artists usually circus school trained performing “traditional” circus skills. Including 5 flying trapeze artists. Bensalam a Moroccan hand to hand acrobatic trio . Gerard a juggler. Jean Marie a motorbike and car stunt man. Shaun the BMX bike boy, Ana and Rachael perch trapeze. Jayson, Boris and Christian, leaders of the metal Clowns later to be replaced by just Boris.
A group of 18 Caporiera dancers and musicians from Biha Brazil
The Thunderdogs, a London based new age traveller anarchic rock band with lots of energy and some very talented musicians and sound engineer. They had already recorded a C.D just about every track was used to support the action on the piste.
To support the trucks the piste would have to be hard standing or a asphalt road would have to be made. A door at either end would have to be high and wide enough to let the trucks pass
