Illuminated, talking puppets
The Meadow Sprites is a strolling/walkabout street theatre show consisting of 2 puppeteer/performers operating 2 bunraku-style puppets, (the puppeteers are visible, veiled, & are behind the puppets animating their movements, giving them voice).
The Sprites are beautifully constructed puppets with exquisite attention to detail. Each puppet stands approx. 3ft tall & is costumed in glorious shimmering greens & golds that are illuminated with led lights integrated into the costumes, (perfect for daytime & evening events alike; festivals and parades).
The show is a strolling visual spectacle involving spoken interactions with the audience/public & accompanied by a magical ‘summer meadow soundtrack’.
Charming, cheeky & thoroughly engaging these magical creatures have flown in from the meadow to explore the human world. Watch them as they fly & flit about, spreading summer’s warmth & tales of their woodland habitat. Now you see them, now you don’t! These characters will bewitch & beguile your audience.
“The puppets feel so real that you end up speaking to them as if they are alive! They’re fascinating & the detail that’s gone into making them is amazing!” Jan Bell, staff, Eastgate Shopping Centre, Inverness.
