Welcome to the Mischief La-Bas homepage. Established in 1992, we are a performance company that interacts directly with the audience – from Glasgow to Venezuela - usually in public places and more often than not with humour and irreverence. Whether it’s a one to one presentation, or a major international project, we always remain true to our motto and attempt to ‘gently warp the underlay of the fabric of society’.
Large scale art and performance projects from the UK and Europe.
We have pieced together fragments of a video transmission sent from somewhere in the Atlantic by Gretchen Pankhurst, the curator of Professor Hildeberg's Hibernating Antarctic Zoo.

Always looking for that perfect shot and exclusive quote, these 'flash-popping hacks' spot celebrities at every turn. They're guaranteed to give any event that 'red carpet' atmosphere right from the start.
Mischief La-Bas are a company who specialise in interactive theatre. This takes many guises. As part of our repertoire we can provide walkabout comedy characters that are ideal entertainment for outdoor events, corporate parties and festivals. We also welcome commissions for one-off events and mid to large-scale outdoor theatrical experiences. In the past these have ranged from a series of marketing events for a premium gin brand to the invasion of Scotland by a gang of timid and contrite Vikings who swept through the towns and villages of Scotland apologising for the wrongs of their forefathers. The latter, funded by Creative Scotland, was designed to be accessible, expansive and, of course, humourous. Currently, we are working in collaboration with other artists and organisations on a number of innovative theatrical experiences.
