At the Horecava: a big dutch event for everything restaurant-food-cafe-bar related we worked with Icova the dutch marketleader in recycling. Their slogan is: “making more from waste!”. Now that’s something we can work with. On the spot we created a superlarge puppet called Bettie (the name is borrowed from Bettie Serveert, a famous dutch indie band). We made a large stand to work in with Astrid Tweepuntnul’s beautiful Alice in Wonderland puppets, a large cubic 3d recycling logo and some 3D letters out of cardboard. Bettie was our first effort in making articulate cardboard walking puppets! The whole character is rigged on an old stripped backpack with aluminum frame. We are now often using this technique: so please saves those old backpacks for us!
