Liverpool’s own Lantern Company are delighted to be appearing as part of the Sound City Festival this year with a brand new set of illuminated puppet creatures making their UK debut following a night time appearance in Hong Kong.
On Saturday at midnight, plans are afoot for an illuminated parade, hot on the heels of the Flaming Lips headline set, that will transport festival goers to an extraordinary surrealist world of the imagination where art and science morph through crazy giant mutant puppets, released into the late night audience...
Inspired by astonishing images revealed through the photomicroscopic lens, we introduce you to a world where sci-fi meets carnival, pop culture, manga cartoons and Haute Couture!
Earlier in the evening, the Lantern Company’s old favorites, the Skeleton Family plus specially decrepit guests, will be dusting themselves down and creeping up through the cracks of the derelict docklands for some raucous bone rattling shenanigans with anyone brave enough to join them!
The Lantern Company’s team of exceptional artists have been creating spell binding spectacles for audiences locally, nationally and internationally over the last 12 years, with their unique and illuminated blend of street arts, carnival, theatre and other out-of-the-box events.
