FIFA 2010 World Cup Closing Ceremony

In 2010 we were honored to be part of the 2010 FIFA World cup closing ceremony when we were commissioned by VWV to build and perform life-sized puppet elephants.

For the closing ceremony of the FIFA World Cup we were asked to build 13 elephants along the lines of the ones that Roger had built for Linz in 2009. These were created in white polyethylene and each elephant was operated by 3 people.

They were built by a small team in the studio at Beyond the Moon near Wilderness and transported in pieces to Johannesburg where they were assembled for the rehearsals and Final Performance

With the help of choreographer Natalie Fisher we spent two weeks rehearsing the movement in Johannesburg before the event.
