“WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF GALLOP”
Galloping Tales are stories, games and interactive encounters in a world of shapes, masks and characters. Realised through Digital Puppetry, and combining the fantasy of an animated cartoon, with the immediacy of live performance and the story telling of your favourite books, Galloping Tales will have you up on your feet and interacting in ways you would not have thought possible!
Digital Puppetry uses digital interactive techniques to control digital cartoon characters within a cartoon world projected behind the puppeteers that both tell stories and interact with the audience through motion tracking with XBOX Kinects. We have fine tuned these techniques throughout the development of these shows, and this year we have added a new technique of using toy puppets in front of a small green screen. We then add these physical puppets, into the digital cartoon world alongside the digital puppets creating a really interesting collage of techniques.
