Beasties set up in the style of a petting zoo, Beasties is an interactive installation of electronically controlled animals, which combine sound, movement, and other surprises, such as a pig that squirts water, and is overseen by a pair of unusual keepers.
A square cow quacking for biscuits, a squirting pig, a one eyed blue cat, dancing carrots, and a giant roaming poo, “Beasties” is a petting zoo with a difference.. This strange but endearing assortment of electronic animals will keep young and old enchanted and highly amused. Set up to be partly observational and partly interactive, there’s fish birds to feed and Deloras will sing for you if you pat her enough.
There’s also a pair of keepers to oversee the animals, answer your questions, and keep the poo from following you home.
Installation – three hours, usually broken into 3 x 60 minute sets with 30 – 60 minute breaks in between. During the breaks, the installation stays set up, but is roped off to the public, and the animals turned off.
Some of the animals are in pens and there to be observed, and some are accessible for the audience to physically interact with.
And there’s also a large poo that roams around…
Beasties is performed as a 3 hr installation that can be broken up into
either two x 90 minute, or three x 60 minute sets, with a 30 minute break
