Electric circus is a co-operation between inventor Fred Abels & puppeteer Mirjam Langemeijer. Their teamwork has led to a unique way of street theatre. With use of modern techniques like animatronics together with the use of skilful puppetry they create truly lifelike creatures.
Headspace is a installation with mechanics and puppets being operated fully automatic. There are 3 big heads, with a different little automated spectacle inside each one. One by one the audience can take place in one of the heads, by putting it on like a large helmet. For two minutes, he/she is immersed in a mechanical spectacle which can be experienced in an intimate and personal way. The installation is ongoing, the public can take turns. The concept is to provide a quiet little space for the public, for a moment blocked of of the outside world. Opportunity for a meditative and entertaining experience where anything can happen. Everything there to see and hear is really present, right in front of one pair of eyes.
