Sense of Unity – Weymouth
As dusk falls, follow an illuminated parade through Weymouth and discover the puppets of Baby Dundu and the gentle giant, Dundu. Will they find each other? Will they get on?
You’ll hear rhythms and sounds from across the globe. German company, Dundu features West African Kora (a type of harp), while UK-based Worldbeaters bring their dynamic drumming and light show to the performance.
Join the procession in search of the puppets. Lit from the inside, admire the giant puppet’s transparent, flexible body as it illuminates against the dark evening sky. Five skilled puppeteers breathe life into the figures as they interact with you. Enjoy dynamic beats and high-energy music. The soundtrack for the evening comes from unique LED-lit drums.
Expect playful puppets and a sensory spectacle as Weymouth experiences the awe-inspiring Sense of Unity.
