World’s biggest human puppet – Everybody.
Everybody’s Born – Everybody Cries – Everybody Shits – Everybody Dies
Everybody is a giant 26m human puppet with articulated, detachable and interactive body parts and organs. Ambitious in scope and subject, it is the largest human puppet on the planet and represents the essential humanness of everybody.
Everybody‘s build is experimental; it’s kind of unimaginable, so big and complex but without high-tech design. Its creation is brute: rough: and handmade. Everybody is all genders and multi-racial. Everybody is not just one puppet but a multitude of independent, roaming human body parts and organs; they are all characters in their own epic tale of human existence.
Everybody, the experience, is a 90-minute show. Everybody lies down indoors in theatres, outdoors in parks and in open public spaces. In repose, Everybody sleeps, breathes and stirs. Everybody is an immersive experience. Audiences can walk around, sit on, lie against, get inside, and cuddle up to Everybody and all its beautiful body parts.
The piece begins with the death of the giant human puppet via a brick thrown at Everybody’s head. The head cracks and its brain oozes out. Everybody watches their life flash before their eyes, from birth through life and ultimately death. Everybody’s now independent body parts and organs perform the journey of their life stages.
Everybody is in 4 Acts: Everybody’s Born, Everybody Cries, Everybody Shits, Everybody Dies.
Human performers play audience members or passers-by who find themselves transported into, then flung out of, the brain of Everybody.
Everybody is made up of a Mouth, Eye, Poo, Foot, Ear, Nose, Brain, Lungs, Baby, Penis, Vagina, Bum, Skin, Heart, Hand, Guts, Breast and Hair. And with guests, Pig & Brick.
