Stilt Walking Characters: The Dragons

The Dragons


With the Rio Olympics coming up soon, The Dragons are coming. Vibrant and fun, with a carnival feel and perfect to celebrate the big occasion. If you would like to provide your guests at your corporate events, parties, balls or weddings with great walkabout entertainment The Dragons are available for hire through Contraband.
 
The Dragons are bright and colourful walkabout creatures that were inspired by the Gaudí sculptures in Barcelona. 
 
The Dragons veer between high-energy prancing and sculptural stillness, with their long tongues tousling your hair and their lizard like movements. They leap from one place to another – but beware! – they are very interested in the contents of your bags, your pockets or even your sandwiches. 
 
The costumes are brightly coloured, beautifully and painstakingly made with the An Act Above trademark attention to detail. A perfect walkabout to add a touch of carnival to any event.
 
Standard Length Of Performance:
 
3 x 30 min, 2 x 45 min or 1 hour straight.
