Street INvaderS • Tina Green

She creates an exciting and fun atmosphere everywhere she performs, entertaining audiences around the world and dazzling them with her fantastic hula hoop tricks, silly stunts and hilarious audience participation. Tina tops it all off, balanced precariously atop a 6-foot unicycle, launching objects from her foot and catching them on her head. A truly unique show, suitable for all ages.

After initially spending their nights packing out pubs, Buddha in a Chocolate Box spread their wings and launched their debut EP, The Keep on Keepin’ On EP, in 2010.

An exciting year looms for Buddha in a Chocolate Box in 2013, with two new releases imminent – The Where I Belong EP and Clarence Cottage EP.
