Sorry – this event has already happened!
A trio of unusual optical creatures have landed and as they look down from above, they are curious to find out more about Woolwich and Greenwich. An intriguing interactive walkabout show which encourages you to reflect on seeing the world from a different perspective.
i-Puppets will be performed as part of GDIF’s spectacular Opening Night, transforming the streets and public spaces of Woolwich with art, food, dance, street theatre and a dazzling finale, and will also be performed as part of Greenwich Fair, GDIF’s two-day “festival within a festival” from 21-23 June, bringing together UK and international street arts companies to Greenwich Town Centre in a fun-filled, family-friendly extravaganza.
For both the Opening Night and Greenwich Fair, i-Puppets will be a roaming performance. In Woolwich the performance can be seen all over Powis Street and Greens End, and in Greenwich it will be all over Greenwich Fair.
