String Symphony is a large-scale, interactive performance installation that uses puppetry to explore connection, community and collaboration.
Hand-woven using more than one kilometre of rope, the giant illuminated puppet is waiting to be brought to life. This mesmerizing performance invites 12 audience members to become puppeteers. As the participants manipulate the giant interactive puppet, onlookers marvel at the beauty of this magnificent creation.
A joyful, engaging and visually stunning work for all ages, String Symphony offers a high impact piece for festivals and outdoor events.
