The evolution of the Bass Caravan brand and performance show has transformed through so many different phases since its inception in 2012. From its origins in the grungy backroom floors of the circus sideshow to the powerhouse global tribe of warriors and entertainers, it’s an continuously evolving work of art. Always striving to take on new shapes to keep audiences enthralled.
My goal when conceptualizing the Bass Caravan show was to create a fully sensory performance that combined visual splendor, live music, stunning performers and an engaging storyline. The big difference though from your typical performance show is that our goal was to provide a powerhouse performance while also encouraging the audience to get up and dance alongside us. This was never intended to be a sit down, theatre style show. I wanted the audience to participate and feel involved. The creation and development of Le Cirque de la Nuit was used to support this idea as we created an entire event space that was themed in the same vein and encouraged patrons to dress up and become part of the magic.
Musically Bass Caravan has also gone through an evolution of sound encompassing a range of musical influence from vintage electro swing to the grindy basslines of world bass. Through all of the different sounds though, the main goal was to keep it engaging, fun and expressive.
