Four legged, Two legged, magical, inquisitive or elegant; Innovative costumes and strong physicality transform our performers into a menagerie of critters.
They embody the concept of the ethereal… their elongated, earthbound bodies twist and contort with their acrobatic antics. They are playful and jittery — Fire Harvesters, Nymphs capable of flight and Soldier Protectors populate the hive. Their presence signifies a looming metamorphosis.
From the twisted mind of the infamous Papa Boneshaker—a custom genetic machination of ancient flying contraption, kinetic sculpture, four-legged stilt creature complete with bio electric feedback and on board effects ranging from hi tech led lighting to triggered pyrotechnics.
Also known as the Dream Eaters — the Kokapi emit their electro-luminescent glow with the sunset each evening. Generally nocturnal, Kokapi can grow as tall as 12 feet tall and when on their hind legs can reach — if only for a few seconds- to a height of nearly 20 feet. They travel in small packs of two to seven and are indigenous to the Sonoran Desert region of the US. The herd has a dedicated docent and is often accompanied by their shepherd.
The Arbox, like the Kokapi, are part of the Equidae family of creatures. Their horns are composed of exfoliating bone and their demeanor is generally playful — they enjoy being ridden and are about 20 hands tall or larger. Their herd size ranges from three to nine and they are fond of crowds and loud music.
The mysterious Shadowalkers are part stealth weaponry — part sculptural deference. Their movements cannot be calculated nor expected. They are near silent even with brisk movements. They can take refuge in the smallest space or they can expand to fill a space exponentially larger than themselves. The Shadowalkers travel in small herds of three to five and their colors vary from black to white to red — their height varies from 8 to 12 feet.
