Inspired by the famous Rube Goldberg Machines; “a comically involved, complicated invention, laboriously contrived to perform a simple operation” (Webster’s New World Dictionary). Thingamabob is a spectacle which brings a highly original devised, ball slinging, self exploding contraption to the public where they, the audience, become part of the machine themselves and play a role to ensure the complete satisfaction of watching one of these wonderful chain reaction machines work.
This show uses a mixture of circus, invention and comedy to bring a mesmerising piece of gadgetry to life. All presented with PanGottic’s charm and wit captivating the audience right up until the moment the machine animates itself, its inventor and its audience.
