The Valley Troll is an interactive visual theatre work in the form of a giant puppet, operated by a single street performer. The Valley Troll roams the streets, interacting with attendees of any festival, sometimes seen attending acts, leading a procession from one event to the next, or just interacting with people and architecture in the general public space.

Fully equipped with lights, sound and smoke, this is a playful, visual theatre act that really comes to life.



The Valley Troll was originally presented as part of the visual artist showcase for BIGSOUND Festival and Music Conference.

The Fortitude Valley Troll is a creature that has long lives in the annals and nooks of ‘The Valley’, thriving in an environment of busy nightlife, loud music and late entertainment. Feeding on the late-night punters’ dropped kebabs and sucking spilled drinks from the floor of closed bars, the Troll has made a very happy home in the valley and it could be argued fits in rather well with the calibre of Valley patrons. 

Although the Troll has long lived in Fortitude Valley until now there have only been a few reported sightings and close-encounters. However, enticed by the music and entertainment of the BIGSOUND festival, the Troll as finally come into the spotlight and will be interacting with the public for the first time.
