About the Walk/Driveabout
Meet Belladonna, the beautiful but deadly gardener, as she tries to catch a tasty morsel for her hungry Venus Flytraps. Is your hand steady enough that you dare to feed the flytraps yourself? Or will you help Aristotle the batty bluebottle to escape from their deadly clutches? Watch out that you don’t get sucked in by her charm too, as she entices the foolish fly towards his sweet, toothy decline.
What to expect
This act involves a giant fly being chased by a gardener in a Venus Flytrap Puppet drawn chariot. During static spots children are invited to feed the flytrap puppets with small plastic flies on large spoons. The flytraps snap shut and make burping and gurgling noises. The ironically-named Aristotle is tempted towards the flytraps and the audiences are given the choice of pushing him in or saving him, which really says a lot about a place and it’s people (we’d get rid of him too, in fairness).
This is a beautifully created and costumed drive-about act with exquisite presentation bringing gentle and friendly fly-themed fun to the streets. Also great for environmental and garden-themed events as well as Puppetry Festivals.
Belladonna and Aristottle are also available in a spooktacular chase for Halloween in “Belladonna the Witch”. Click the button below to find out more.
