“Immersive street theatre at its very best” – www.festivalkidz.com
Horace will be performing at Vivacity, Peterborough’s Heritage Festival 2017 on June 17th and 18th. Enter his slimy belly and brush his grimy teeth!!
Brought to you by performing professors and dotty groom Joe, audiences are invited to explore Horace and help prepare him for the day, brushing his teeth and massaging his paddles, before venturing inside his belly on a cinematic journey full of slimy surprises!
Here exists the eccentric world of Professor Humphrieson, Plesiosaurs and Ichthyosaurs. Horace is a unique blend of engineering, film and live performance with fact-filled, fun, family entertainment!
What the experts say:
“The highlight for the children was Horace the Pliosaur – a large puppet dinosaur which you could actually climb inside to watch an interactive film inside its belly. This was exciting and enchanting – immersive street theatre at its very best; the creation of Emerald Ant, containing a film by the great Forkbeard Fantasy theatre group.” www.festivalkidz.com
