String Symphony
at Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games

String Symphony will be showcasing at Festival 2018 as part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games! Come along to meet a large lightbased puppet who stands more than four metres tall! Twinkling in the night’s sky, this friendly giant invites people to work together to create movement by pulling on its suspension strings, providing a unique, shared and multisensory experience for all ages.

Designer and maker of String Symphony Leon Hendroff, describes how String Symphony aims to bring strangers together for a unique shared experience.

“In a time when people might feel quite isolated themselves, String Symphony provides an opportunity for them to have a tangible connection with other people,” Hendroff said.
