STRUNG TO­GETHER

Stirling Times - - At The Movies -

SPARE Parts Pup­pet The­atre will have the world, or at least the Com­mon­wealth, on a string when it takes multi-sen­sory in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence String Sym­phony to the Gold Coast 2018 Com­mon­wealth Games cel­e­bra­tions.

De­signed for all ages, the giant hand­wo­ven il­lu­mi­nated pup­pet named Leor (mean­ing ‘I have light’) was de­signed by pup­pet maker Leon Hen­droff and au­di­ence mem­bers are in­vited to work to­gether to bring him to life.

Leor is made from more than 1km of rope and 600 LED lights and was cre­ated to bring strangers to­gether for a unique shared ex­pe­ri­ence.

“String Sym­phony pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for them to have a tan­gi­ble con­nec­tion with other peo­ple,” Hen­droff said.

String Sym­phony’s Leor will de­light peo­ple on the Gold Coast.
