‘PERFORMING MOTION’

BRINGING THE FIGURES TO LIFE REQUIRED A BALANCE OF STRENGTH AND TECHNIQUE.

Standing over 11 feet tall, the figures featured in ‘Steps’ were made of carbon fibre skeletons and 3D printed shells so they were light enough to be controlled by five incredibly talented puppeteers. Each of the artists that brought these figures to life had individual performances to give, while also syncing perfectly with the group for one fluid performance. The core weight and momentum of the figure was resting on the shoulders of the centre puppeteer.

Even further back another puppeteer controlled the torso and made the figure bend down in perfect coordination with a puppeteer controlling the head remotely. Finally, two other puppeteers controlled the arms and mechanical hands. The combination of countless rehearsals, precise choreography, shear physical strength and each puppeteer’s immense talent brought a life and spirit to these figures.
