IN THE MEAN TIME, YOU CAN GET A TASTE OF SOME OF OUR WORK BELOW.
  • The May Starty
    The Starty
    A party, cabaret and handy Womens' Committee Meeting for airing seasonal thoughts. It's celebrated at the start of Holidays; Christmas, Easter, May Day, Harvest Festival - you get the idea.

    Your hosts are the Ladies of the WC who guide you through an evening of comedy, music and games. There's always crafting, generally a raffle, plenty of dancing & laughing.

    The humour's been known to be wrong-shaped and irreverent, & guests are invited to dress up if they wish in their Seasonal Finery.

    The Starty's been seen across London at SoHo Theatre, Land of Kings Festival, The Book Club and The Talbot. Soho Theatre said: "The most bizarre office Christmas party you will ever attend." Le Cool said: "it's critically acclaimed and it's bananas."

  • The Salon du Thé
    The Salon
    du Thé
    A period afternoon tea experience in the company of a gracious host, her flamboyant associates and her domestic staff. Audiences are immersed in a bygone era with friends, strangers and characters for a pleasurable performance and a sumptuous feast.

    We encourage dressing up for those that enjoy wearing a really good hat or even full Edwardian dress, but we welcome you however you are most comfortable.

    Exploring the culture surrounding the traditional Afternoon Tea the events are designed for audiences of 50 people and upwards, for roll out in Stately Homes and Historic Houses, Theatrical Venues and Festivals.

    NEXT OUTING : rumoured to be in collaboration with Bestival aboard an Edwardian Train on the Isle of Wight in early September.

  • The Red Death Lates
    The Red
    Death Lates
    8 months of Friday and Saturday Night Parties at the BAC for the Lates of Punchdrunk's spectacular Masque of the Red Death.

    A different cast of performers each night, Audiences were plunged, post show, into a durational, immersive party inspired by that of Edgar Allan Poe's Prince Prospero.

    True to Poe, the parties had much of the bizarre, much of the wanton- dancing beasts, Mexican wrestling fights, a plague make-up parlour, a travelling freakshow, Quack Dr's & the extraordinary Aunty Poppy.

    "It's…like being in the performance party equivalent of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory." Time Out

  • Camp Bestival
    Camp Bestival
    Since 2008 we've created installations for the Dingly Dell at Camp Bestival for adults and children.

    Each year a darkly comic promenade around the woodland area of the Festival site tells the tale of the fortunes of a village and its inhabitants, drawing from the recent and distant history of our real world.

    Our Artists, Designers, Performers, Writers and Musicians create immersive, living stories in this magical little bolt hole which comment on the social and political changes that have affected a little land and its people.

    2013 will see us creating an immersive audio installation, 'Under the Dragon's Wing' alongside sculptures and puppetry from Mechanical Menagerie and Story Den.

Gideon Reeling make truly immersive theatrical experiences. We make them for theatres and individuals, for brand experiences and cabaret nights, for festivals and parties. We've made them in the UK and in wider Europe: in clubs, in houses, in fields, in hotels, in high streets and city squares, in conferences, in Stately Homes, in schools and online. We make them with a sense of fun, we encourage interaction and we strive to create a sense inclusive playfulness in all that we do. We also create games and play them with people.

Look out for our lovely new website which is cooking and for our upcoming events for Kings X, Produce UK, Camp Bestival, Bestival and the Book Club via our social media pages and right here. Or mail us to see what we can do for you. We look forward to entertaining you.

Mr Reeling Wishes you Play.
