People, Puppets, Fire

People, Puppets, Fire takes the musical themes created for the portentously puppetised protagonists of multiple Fire Events and reimagines a world where they and their themes coexist as a sensual musical and visual treat.

For almost a decade musical instrument toting festival patrons made their way to the Grande every morning during each festival and quietly (and sometimes noisily) collaborated as the Woodford Festival Orchestra to create a grand palette of music and sound to perform live as a contribution to the Fire Event soundtrack. From Astrid to Tilda, from Viktor to Bosswan, from the Monsters and their Queen to the Auryx and the people of The South, these larger than life puppets and their larger than life searches, struggles, rifts, laments and resolutions amongst the drama and excitement in the amphitheatre were accompanied by the sounds of the Woodford Festival Orchestra. These themes meet, mix, mash and morph in People, Puppets, Fire.

Featuring compositions by Festival Orchestra director Andrew Veivers, performed by some of Woodfordia’s finest musicians and singers and realised in an atmosphere of pomp, sparkles and lights - with maybe the occasional 6 metre tall visitor.
