Olifantland, a multilingual visual theatre show featuring five majestic life size elephant puppets by Adrian Kohler from Handspring Puppet Company in collaboration with UKWANDA Puppet and Design Collective - directed and choreographed by Aja Marneweck. Basil Jones, charged Simon with the task of integrating elephant infrasonic call types into the play. He set about researching and collecting field recordings and created the score almost entirely from them. Simon also designed the sound props for the puppets, by adapting the vuvu-zela with various pipe extensions - the result was that the puppeteers were able to produce extremely accurate elephants sounds on stage. Watch CNN’s Inside Africa episode ‘Saving elephants through puppetry’ to meet the team and explore this fascinating project further.
