In GHOST CARIBOU, Thingumajig Theatre’s new night-time street act, giant illuminated creatures, part caribou, part spirit, roam a mystical world after dark, accompanied by a wild herdsperson.
As the crowd gathers, they clear a space to perform their other-worldly ceremony.
With music, song and shadow puppets they tell stories of lost homes, impossible migrations and seeds of hope before continuing the journey into their hauntingly beautiful dream-world of the night.
Ghost Caribou was created and constructed by Kathy and Andrew Kim with Jonny Quick and Mark Whitaker with original music by Kathy Kim.
The R&D for Ghost Caribou was supported by Blueprint: Without Walls R&D Investment Fund. Without Walls is the UK’s largest commissioner of outdoor arts shows, taking inspiring new work to audiences all over the country and beyond
