Photo: NICOLE GOURLEY Five world class busking acts have been picked from more than 50 hope- fuls and are set to amaze crowds at Buskerburgoo, Nel- son's Buskers and Street Theatre Series running from this Thursday to Sunday. Summer Festivals director Sophie Kelly said a tough selec- tion process had resulted in a fantastic lineup of street enter- tainment. We've got a real mix of clas- sic street theatre and out-there' busking entertainment from all corners of the globe. It's really difficult choosing just five acts from such high calibre busking talent but we think we've managed to select the very best of the best,'' she said. All the way from Ireland comes sword swallower Murray Molloy; then there's Ernest the Magnifico from Australia featuring a high-flying stuntcar, a pogostick and a comic per- sona, and Minnie Maniac, from our very own shores, with her world-class hula hoop skills. Dado from Canada is a unique silent clown act, alleg- edly swallowing table-tennis balls, balloons and even little dogs, and Jessica Arpin of Spain will perform acrobatics on her faithful yellow bicycle in a love story about her new homeland. You can see these performers at the top of Trafalgar St this Thursday and Friday from 11am till 2.30pm, and on Saturday from 10.30am till 2pm. For something a little more risque, head along to R18 cab- aret show When Buskers Go Bad, at The Boathouse, this Thursday and Friday night. Tickets on sale at Everyman in Hardy St or online at every- man.co.nz Buskerburgoo finishes with two nights of family-friendly entertainment this Saturday and Sunday at 6pm at Fairfield Park. Bring cushions, low chairs and cash to reward the performers. The entertainment was previously held at the Church Steps, but the venue was changed so it does not clash with the Adam Chamber Music Festival at Nelson's cathedral. Buskerburgoo is part of Nel- son City Council's Summer in Nelson programme.
