Bird Brain is a giant, interactive puppet installation for the young (and young at heart!)
Designed to be operated by children, this giant bird swallows up colourful seeds and spills them into its belly – onto anyone who might be standing underneath!
On a fully self-contained structure, Bird Brain can be set up for festivals and events looking for engaging, interactive visual theatre for young people.
It seems a giant bird has roosted in the turbine platform of the Powerhouse, and you can come and play in its nest! Join giant-puppeteer Caitlin Strongarm for Powerkids: Little Artists at Play – Bird Brain and interact with giant puppets, feed the hungry bird, investigate the sound making eggs, or become a baby bird yourself.
