DUNDU is an illuminated large-scale puppet that has enthralled spectators worldwide. Though large in size, he is a gentle creature that glides between audience members with ease and grace, tickling fancies and chins along the way. DUNDU means You and You (DU und DU) and the Dundu family, through years of stellar craftsmanship, original live music, and finely- tuned puppeteering, bring a visual, interactive, mobile experience to the public.
It is hard to describe the captivating nature of this glowing figure but when you see people’s eyes light up with awe, you know he has achieved the goal – to instill a simple sense of wonder and togetherness in adults and children. The only thing larger than this giant is his heart.
The sound of the Giants
The unique sound world of the Kora enlivens DUNDU and supports his unprecedented atmosphere. Each situation shares its common quality with the acoustic. Besides this, the magic spell and aesthetics are due, not least, to the music with its fluid sound structure of the West African Kora-harp. This is played by Stefan Charisius and conceived specifically for the performance. Stefan belongs to the few Europeans who excel in playing this rhythmically complex instrument which has been used for centuries as a means of opening channels for well-being and for inner peace.
Now color comes into play.
For the 10th anniversary of DUNDU, puppeteer and inventor Tobias Husemann and his creative collective, who brought you The Gentle Giant, crafted a new figure: BIMBI – The Amazing Grace.
BIMBI met DUNDU onstage under the lights of an in-house theatre production. All attending shared the intimate tango the two found in their first dance. They are a truly unique couple, complementing perfectly. With the search for a companion and playmate now complete, they are enjoying dancing together on stages across the world. Equipped with the latest advances in lighting technology, BIMBI possesses the ability to express her emotions vividly. It is the next step in Giant Puppet Art, fusing performing art and contemporary design.Read more
