Who: The Mischievians are a misfit band whacky characters, boasting boldly bright costumes a dangerous twinkle in their eyes. They are true mischief catalysts whose mission is pure play. While playing at the sound stages, they elevate the energy of the dance floor, giving license to the absurd, the full-hearted exuberant, weaving a dance floor steeped in infectious joy. While roaming, they create whimsical marching parades, bubbling with playful expression, inviting others to join in the fun! The atmosphere created is one of invitational play, operating with tuned sensitivity to the needs and desires of the event attendees.
What: The Mischievians have two character personas they bring to the festivals they inhabit: The Friendly Fire Elves and the Rainbow Spect-Trolls. Both sets of characters provide day-time roaming however the Rainbow Spect-Trolls have the added benefit of being able to roam at night due to their blacklight umbrellas that light up their neon costumes, hair and body paint. The Trolls have been known to create roaming dance parties and singing circles long after the main stages have closed down because in the land where they come from, the party never stops! Why: We are all tribe here. Let’s come together and celebrate this beautiful, blessed life we have been gifted! The Mischievians recognize that participating in artistic expression can be profoundly healing and it is their mission to make each person feel included in the creation of the art, and to feel empowered to be their inner artist if they so choose to be. It is their belief that co-operative and communal creative expression is not only healing and empowering for the individual, it is profoundly beneficial for our collective mind, as it gives us the tools, trust and cooperative spirit that we need to rise into the next phase of our evolution as a species.
