Mechanical Creatures

We have taught bicycles to walk!

A performance between art installation and mobile theater.
Unusual. striking. moving.

They file past slowly. Stamping, munching, steaming. Pinions rotate, chains clank, metallic eyes gleam. Herdsmen try to keep the herd of mechanical creatures on course.
One breaks away, a young one falls behind. Changing pastures, moving down from the mountain or the road to the slaughterhouse?
Whirring and buzzing, the animals wind their way towards an uncertain future. Yesterday modern, today nothing but scrap metal – the harsh reality of our times.

The performance generates impulses for reflections!

Technology, robotics, electric mobility, sustainability, upcycling, future.

A walking act where the performing arts meets visual art.
A snatch of deceleration, slowness and durability.
The unique performance will amaze your audience.

Excited reactions all over Europe!

“almabtrieb” and “weidewechsel”

The animals stand inside a small wooden fence and move minimally. They can be seen and admired by the audience. In between, the shepherds open the barrier and lead the herd to another “pasture” or back into the enclosure.

Ceremonial driving down of cattle from the mountain pastures into the valley in autumn.

Changing pastures, e. g. in the alps.
