Orfeo (2009)

The junkyard mechanic, Orfeo, traverses the streets in a wild elemental procession full of colour, ritual and pageantry.

Inspired by the Greek myth of Orpheus and the Underworld, Orfeo, a 14ft high light metal sculptural puppet takes to the streets. He is followed by a procession of giant wise illuminated beasts, Paleolithic creatures, bird men on stilts and troupes of wild, masked performers.
