A woman (An acrobat flyer) walks out onto stage pulling fabric behind her on the ground


She sets it down and begins to whistle.


As she does the fabric begins to animate and becomes this mythic beast made of fabric. Several puppeteers operate the beast and the backline which is made of a Russian Bar (circus apparatus) is held by two acrobatic bases.


“The Woman” climbs up on the Russian Bar and does a few tricks


The beast rolls over and she does a trick balancing on its forepaws.


It rolls back over to upright and she does a final trick balancing on its head.

I love creating space for the audience to fill in the blanks. It has proved very effective in other project like Sleeping Beauty. See full project here .
