Galileo and Celeste

Experience the joy of slowing down.

Meet Galileo and Celeste, giant and mysterious ancient figures that will grab your attention and engage your imagination with their impressive stature and mystique. These oversized and intriguing forms roam amongst the crowd – moving slowly, very slowly in a fast-paced world. A horn calls, making you pause and look deeper into the impressive carapaces, here you are transported to another world, suspended in time and space.

Experience the joy of slowing down with this interactive blend of puppetry, performance and sculpture.
