Ocho the Giant Octopus

Category: Show Related artist: Ocho the Giant Octopus

Ocho the Octopus is a ground breaking, inflatable octopus, with 8 independently articulated legs able to curl and sway in a lifelike fashion for walkabout performances. Ocho is huge – 4m high and 7m wide – maximising the immediate wow-impact on spectators. At the same time, its delicate control mechanism enables the puppet to build spontaneous rapport with its audience. Lightweight and easy to manoeuvre by a single puppeteer, it is nimble and responsive to those it meets. With soft skin it is tactile and safe for close contact with adults and children.
Ocho is unique in that most existing inflatable creations, whilst impressive, are lifeless and lack that quality which deeply engages the audience.
Ocho is fitted with LED lights for stunning illuminated performances at night and in the winter.
