“Immersive street theatre at its very best” – www.festivalkidz.com
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!
Horace deal for Jurassic Coast schools, Summer 2018
Horace the Pliosaur will come and visit your school for a special Dippy Discount rate this Summer Term. He will be hosted by his groom Joe. Children will get to brush his teeth, learn about Deep Time, the Pliosaur’s age and habitat. Then they will handle local fossils and take a quick tour inside his belly. All children (up to around 350) can get the ‘Horace Experience’ in the one day. Participating schools include Manor Park, Dorchester and Puddletown First Schools.
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
