A giant illuminated puppet suspended within its network of ropes is waiting to come to life….

String Symphony

“Audiences were delighted as dusk fell and the giant puppet started to twinkle and the energy on the festival site was palpable. Presenting String Symphony has been a highlight for the Joondalup Festival in 2017…” Jennifer Nebel, Principal Arts Officer, City of Joondalup

String Symphony is a large-scale, interactive performance installation that uses puppetry to explore connection, community and collaboration.

This large scale interactive sculptural work has been created by Australia’s renowned puppetry company, Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, with designer and puppet maker Leon Hendroff. Commissioned by the City of Joondalup, this world-first premiered at the 2017 Joondalup Festival.

Hand-woven using more than one kilometre of rope, the giant illuminated puppet is waiting to be brought to life. This mesmerising performance invites twelve 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 visual stunning work for all ages, String Symphony offers a high impact piece for festivals and outdoor events.
