Illuminated, talking puppets
“The Winter Sprites” is a strolling/walkabout street theatre show consisting of 2 puppeteer /performers operating 2 x “Winter Sprite” bunraku-style puppets, (the puppeteers are visible, veiled, & are behind the puppets animating their movements, giving them voice, & making them fly, flit & leap around the performance area). The puppets are approx. 3ft tall & are costumed in glistening, icy colours 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 ‘winter soundscape’.
Released into the human world in the months leading to Christmas these spirited & mischievous creatures float, fly & flit from person to place; investigating & exploring as they go & spreading festive cheer, quips & yarns of winter lands, & stories galore!
“A magical, life-affirming show which will be held in people’s hearts & memories for years to come”. – Sue Hurrell, Performance & Entertainment Manager, The Alnwick Garden.
“Thank you for all the performances over the weekend. The Winter Sprites worked brilliantly in the centre, it was lovely to see the way both children and parents interacted with the Sprites. The children were just in awe of them! It all went brilliantly!” – Becky Davies, Marketing & Promotions Executive, Eastgate Shopping Centre, Inverness.
