Puppet Animation Festival: Dinosaur Detectives
As the Dinosaur Detectives weave their way through the audience looking for clues about the past, they discover a secret doorway.
Inside, there are a number of cases and these cases contain the stories of people who discovered dinosaur bones in Victorian times. The Dinosaur Detectives follow a fascinating journey based on the first fossil finds of Mary Anning, William Buckland and Gideon Mantell, whose discoveries changed the face of history.
A performance of rod puppets, shadow play and large scale projections shows the fascination, fun and the conflict that surrounds the search for “Dinosaurs”. At the end of the show the audience can handle fossils including real bones and dinosaur poo!
