String Symphony is a large-scale, interactive performance installation that uses puppetry to explore connection, community and collaboration. Hand-woven using more than one kilometre of rope, the giant illuminated puppet is waiting to be brought to life. This mesmerising performance invites audience members to become puppeteers. As the participants manipulate the giant interactive puppet, onlookers marvel at the beauty of this magnificent creation.

String Symphony will appear in multiple Sunshine Coast locations during Horizon Festival 2018 and is free for all participants. Register your interest to be the first to know when and where this unique experience will appear.

String Symphony will appear in two locations during Horizon Festival; Cotton Tree and Harmony Development in Palmview.

Horizon Festival at Harmony

Join us for three art-fuelled days and experience the creative soul of the Sunshine Coast right here at Harmony.

From Friday 31 August to Sunday 2 September, Harmony will be home to Horizon Festival’s String Symphony – a large-scale, interactive performance installation that uses puppetry to explore connection, community and collaboration. The mesmerising installation invites audience members to become puppeteers and bring the illuminated giants to life, from 2pm to 8pm every day.

To celebrate the installation, we will have a feast of food trucks every day, including Neshama, Good Food Fella's and Paco's Tacos, plus the loveable Larrikin Puppets will be performing daily from 4pm to 5pm next to KAI Coffee.

This is certainly not an event to be missed! Gather your friends and family together and join us for a magical weekend, filled with giant puppets including the playful Mr Big, stilt walkers, face painting, balloon artists and free putt-putt mini golf.

We can’t wait to see you there!
