TV Head Giant Puppets
Based in Adelaide they have been developed over a number of years with the assistance of funding from Arts SA & are economical to transport interstate or overseas. Other Giant Puppets created by Slack Taxi are larger and less transportable, but are very spectacular as well.
Artistic & surprising, the TV Head Dream Police are stunning puppets with technology, innovative design & performance. With fun interaction they speak, smile, wink, laugh or cry; they even sing. What’s for certain is they will delight your audiences!
