What are ‘Condensed Histories’?
In 2011, Juggler, Comedy Performer, Escapologist, Unicyclist and Writer Greg Chapman was looking for a subject for his next show. While sorting kit, he came across an envelope containing his History Degree.
The idea of combining Variety Performance and History was instantaneous, and the shows expanded to become Greg’s main form of event performance. After a number of requests to perform his show in schools, he began to develop school shows in 2013.
Beyond the shows themselves Condensed Histories has moved into books as well as a podcast hosted by Greg with many special guests.
