Fittings archiveRingmaster Rusty Gusty runs the last freak show on the planet - a troupe of fantastical and bizarre creatures who arrive at the Dome in Greenwich to cash in on the celebrations and present the world with their own Millennium Baby. Each have an incredible story to tell as we are allowed into their strange but surprisingly familiar world. A cunning mixture of performance and exhibition, Fittings explores people as objects and what it is to be human - whether as an abhorrent misfit or a perfect angel. It reclaims a part of disability history - the freak show - and uses it to challenge the taboos surrounding disability against the aesthetic of the body beautiful. Set in a tent on Millennium Eve, Fittings is the last freak show of the twentieth century, treading a delicate and disturbing path through fear, fun, voyeurism, curiosity and downright bad taste!
