Compass Presents started life as a film festival hosted by Arnolfini in Bristol. From these origins, they have grown to create multidisciplinary and immersive events that imaginatively combine film, circus, performance and music with interactive installations. Currently in residency at the Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio, Compass Presents is run by a group of volunteers who are committed to establishing collaborative cross-fertilisations with creatives based throughout the South West.
Since 2013, Compass Presents has come to Shambala with a topsy-turvey broken-down world of rickety fairground relics and inventions spawned from the mind of sinister clown, Mr Wiggles. Their tent plays host to the glittering Compass Cabaret, and descends into late-night dance debauchery.
