A huge hand stops traffic. Children are greeted by a giant blinking eye. A big foot playfully stomps on a laughing woman in the street. And is that ear eavesdropping on people as it walks by?
These spectacular oversized sensory characters, Human Body Parts, are just one of the surreal acts created by the team at Snuff Puppets, an Australian performance art troupe that mixes sculpture, physical theatre, and music.
Kids and grown-ups alike go wild for “the weirdness of the disembodied body parts floating down the street,” shares Andy Freer, Snuff Puppets Artistic Director. The 2017 video above shows a few silly moments from festivals in London, Munich, Stuttgart, Ludwigshafen, Lienz, and Budapest.
