Beautiful Creatures

Season 6, Episode 6 of 6

Featuring larger-than-life creatures powered by pedals, Austin Bike Zoo is a one-of-a-kind blend of puppetry and cycling. This "Human Powered Puppetry" was born out of a passion to combine the beauty and strength of human movement with the artistry and theater of puppets and a dedication to creating interactive works. With collaborative support from the community, the zoo presents a new take on classical plays, transforming Shakespeare into a circus performance. Featuring a vast menagerie of creatures including an 80-foot long rattlesnake, Austin Bike Zoo leaves nothing but joy in their quest to educate and inspire while touring the country with their mobile majestical zoo.
