The Bewonderment Machine

The Bewonderment Machine

A Bird in the Hand Theatre

An artist-built cycle-powered carousel, a kinetic public sculpture and a magical journey for small children.

Visually, this is a quirky dreamscape, combining found objects, puppetry, machinery and music.

With riding space for up to 10, this is also a miniature theatrical flight of the imagination, empowering the very young to care, to be curious and to believe in their own strength.

The Bewonderment Machine is a joyful call to re-wild our imaginations, and a celebration of the creatures that are increasingly losing their familiar place in our children’s lives and in their language.

Created with the support of Without walls.

Co-commissioned by Without Walls, Just So Festival, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Brighton Festival and Salisbury International Arts Festival (part of Wiltshire Creative)
