THE PERFORMERS

Dennis Clare
Dennis first trained in the visual arts and on completion of his diploma he then changed track and pursued a care in the performing arts in the area of mime Dennis travelled to America on several occasions and met mime master Reid Gilbert and from his time with Reid he gained the
foundation of his training in mime. Reid and Marcel Marceau were fellow students under the founding father of mime Etienne Decroux and so Dennis learnt his craft from one of mime's true masters. 

After several years touring and performing in America and Europe Dennis returned to Australia and continued to develop several unique aspects of his work which came to light after being commissioned by the Art Gallery of NSW to create a piece of work based on Surrealism which was performed at their gala events and schools program and so was born the apparatus known as the giant slinky.

This is one of the most stunning visual effects you will ever see grace the stage both Dennis and Tony now create works with the apparatus and have incorporated it into several school productions. Together with his mime skills Dennis Clare emerges as one of Australia's top mime artists and a unique entertainer in his chosen field of visual theatre.

Tony Williams
Tony has earned his living writing and playing music for the last thirty years which is testament to the quality of what he does. An accomplished piano player classically trained he is also adept
on guitar. He sings with a passion for his music and as one critic remarked "Williams not only has a great voice... he sings with sincerity ,and it is this sincerity and belief in what he sings that
sets him apart.

Tony has won a number of awards for his song writing over the years including the Philippines International Song Awards in 1996 and the Australian Song Writing Awards in 2005. He has released a number of albums in Australia and overseas. In 1992 his song "Fierce" from the album Glass canoe went to number two nationally in South Africa and the song "She Heals Me" went to number one on the adult contemporary charts in Johannesburg. Tony continues to write and record with his latest album "For what it's worth" which was released in
2011.

Carpe Idiotus
In 1996 Dennis and Tony formed the business of Water Closet Production and after several years performing with the stage name of Williams and Clare in 2006 they changed their stage name to Carpe Idiotus and have continued to work professionally under that name since.
Carpe fuses the best of both artists in a comedy duo which stands alone creating a genre like no other, their comedy songs and stunning visual theatre combined with their manic lunacy creates a unique stage act like no other which has seen them perform throughout the world and has brought them onto the stage of some of the major festivals and comedy venues throughout Australia. They also perform in the areas of corporate events, cruise ships, schools, festivals and for television.
Carpe is one of the most unique acts you will ever see and their brand of humor will have you wanting more.

Two idiots one guitar.

THE SLINKY
When Dennis Clair and Tony Williams aspired to the stage they never dreamed that they'd end up working in air-conditioning...literally! Ducting to be exact.

Great silver tubes come to life and take on a meaning of their own.
They glide, they slide, they swallow each other, they roll and jump and stretch up to six metres in the air. Perfect of large spaces and stages, their wonderful manifestations include Sumo Police The Kangaroo and a Carnivorous Fashion Show! 


THE MUSIC

Amongst others, Tony and Dennis both sing A Very Irritating Song and while it may never be a huge hit you are sure to be still singing it when you try to go to sleep.

Campfire on the Road is a tribute to country music and good lesson on the stupidity of actually building a campfire on the road. Highlighted in this song is Dennis' Dylanesque harmonica playing.
