Jonas & Friends performs with a lot of walkabout acts. They work with special objects, masks, puppets, funny vehicles and props with special effects… For the international market they offer you the walkabout act 'Wood & Wood', because this act is non-spoken and it's possible to transport the props by plane. Below the information of 'WOOD & WOOD' they will give you an idea of their other walkabout acts.
Walkact 'Wood & Wood'
Sustainability is the buzzword of this generation, and nothing brings the issue of environmental awareness to life more powerfully than Wood & Wood. Performed in silence by two wooden people who walk through crowds, among trees, fields, and on stages, the walking characters enchant audiences with their intricate, life-like wooden movements and gestures.
Wood & Wood are made of 100% wood – and, of course, they have an ECO certifcate! Fuelled by wind and solar energy and equipped with their eco-mobile, these two masked characters wander through their wooden world clutching a grass suitcase filled with all their other bio-powered accessories Listen carefully! When they pass by you can hear their joints creaking!
During their travels they get up to all sorts of things: they greet a tree every now and then, tank up the sawdust in their heads and carve a heart into their wooden clothes.
Wood & Wood is non-verbal, mobile mime at it's best: fascinating, poetic and entertaining all at the same time.
Wood & Wood : wood that works to make your heart smile.
- Wood & Wood is suitable for festivals and corporate events ( trade fairs, for receiving guests during an event and as a walkabout act during sustainable events)
- This mask characters are walking between the audience. Normally when we play this act we also use an electric eco-scooter. When we have to travel by plane we are not allowed to transport the eco-scooter because of the Li-Ion batteries. In that case Wood & Wood is played on two non-electric steps, also with a special green decoration.
