A performance by Terrapin puppet theatre took Agfest goers by surprise this year as a six-foot ibis named Ibsen took to the streets and arena to spread a valuable message.
In a satirical performance written by Marcus McKenzie, the giant bin chicken and his friend tell a story to teach audiences about the importance of waste management.
“The little kids seem to really enjoy the silliness of it all, but its still an important and positive message we’re sharing,” says Ellen Roe, stage director from Terrapin.
The puppet which was designed, built, and decorated from scratch by Terrapin’s Bryony Anderson stands to impress the audiences and perhaps frighten any litter that dares to cross its path.
You can find Ibsen the ibis and the Terrapin performers roaming the Agfest event site or performing at the TJM Central Arena. Check the arena bulletin for performance times.
