Faceless Co - Wheelie Bins Walkabout

Eager, green gigantic & cleaners of everything and everyone Mayhem and absurdity prevail when our overzealous yet ineffectual cleansing manager chaperones two massive interactive rubbish bins through the streets. Populated by a rat and cat puppets, and under the watchful eye of the ardent official, the giant dust-busters taunt and tease their way around events, digesting and discarding items, squirting water and brushing up passers by and street furniture.

Faceless Co. - Green Man

An environmentally concerned gentle giant. At 7ft tall Green Man will greet the audience effusively, dangle small children from his branches and avoid dogs wishing to water his roots. Green Man is an evocative, interactive and humorous moving image for field festivals and urban centres. Footage from 1998/1999
