Thundergod was created as part of the People's Puppet Project (Snuff Puppet's Theatre Company) at the Kaohsiung International Puppet Theatre Festival Taiwan. I was the lead builder for this project and facilitated the building of a number of puppets and props with the local arts community in Kaohsuing over an eight day period. The PPP utilises stories or cultural concepts from the local community to create a story or themed event that will be instantly recognised by and resonate with the local people. The workshops culminated in two spectacular performances on the main parade ground of the festival. The puppets became firm favourites with festival goers, many people mobbing the puppets to be photographed with them.
