In Ghost Caribou, Thingumajig Theatre’s new night-time street act, giant illuminated creatures, part caribou, part human, roam a mystical world after dark, accompanied by a wild herds-person. As they gather a crowd, they clear a space to perform their other-worldly ceremony. With music, song and shadow puppets they tell stories of lost homes, impossible migrations and seeds of hope before continuing the journey into their hauntingly beautiful dream-world of the night.
