Flamingo
Animals
Walk Act
Street Theatre
Visual act

A visual and poetic proposal for the street.

Gigantic mechanical toys, this big bird travels through the streets, it comes to life under the action of its technicians, stretches its long neck and calls out to the windows of the upper floors.

As close as possible to the ground, he looks at the crowd around him then jumps in a dance that makes a scene of the street with an improvised ballet. The rhythmic and enhanced mechanical sounds mingle with the song of birds and are part of the soundscape.The stylized structure construction allows the people to discover the function and thus points to the anatomical movements that gives life to the flamingo.

The Flamingo is presented in the urban space as a poetic image and takes the audience into an imaginary migration
