Rimski's Yard holds a variety of different umbrellas... We have 'Rimski's Yard' the stage venue, with Rimski & Handkerchief's Wind Up At Home at its heart... Plus a variety of mobile and static, visual and performance Art spectacles, performed & produced by Oliver Cumming & Laura Pocket...
The most long standing of these is Rimski's Bicycle Piano. Est. 2005... In 2017, Rimski unveiled his latest invention: the double bassicle. Thus, inhabiting the imaginative world of Rimski's Yard, we have Rimski & Handkerchief, the musical clown duo, also the house Performance Artists and primary hosts of Rimski's Yard- the stage venue... An extended colourful crew of friends, family, partners and colleagues, form to co-create the Yards in larger spaces... along with a host of guest artists providing variety entertainment; cabaret, circus, bands & DJ's.
The aim of Rimski's Yard is to produce magical moments and welcoming spaces, where people can temporarily step out of time and into the realm of dreaming without boundaries, and nourishing the senses- with an open heart and wonder, that is not commonly encouraged... We believe this is much needed medicine for the modern human, and a powerful antidote to the world's current struggles.
Rimski's Yard is also host to Rimski & Handkerchief's Saturday Live at 5:05, a globally acclaimed, live streamed TV style show, originally birthed during the first lockdown of 2020.
Specialising in street theatre; walkabout & static shows- and pop up worlds in any spaces.
