Roaming robotic and puppetry animated walkabout street entertainers.
A brand new and visually stunning show from Los Kaos. Our stegosaurus is a palaeontological marvel beautifully realised by our team of special effects artists and puppeteers. Controlled from within by a concealed performer, our trademark combination of live sound, facial animatronics and extreme puppetry bring our dinosaur to life - she is expressive, interactive and full of character and charm. The dinosaur is accompanied by our resident palaeontologist who presents a lively and informative natural history show. Audiences are encouraged to ‘get tactile’ with the dinosaur and to have a go at being palaeontologists themselves. This show will be available for touring from January 2011 – book early to avoid extinction!
Bjorn the Polar Bear
Los Kaos bring you Bjorn the Polar Bear, a magical and unforgettable show for people of all ages. Bjorn is brought to life using innovative aminatronic puppetry techniques, with a skilled (and often very hot!) performer inside operating his movements and facial animations. Our polar bear is accompanied by an arctic conservationist dressed Inuit-style in sumptuous fur costume and performs on a sculptural ice environment. Bjorn is incredibly life-like, playful and interactive and our audiences are encouraged to not just watch but to stroke and pat him - he's just like a real bear but you get to keep your fingers! This show is a must for any Christmas or environmental event - book early to avoid disappointment.

Beautiful, loveable and totally unique - must be seen to be believed.
The Martians stride through this strange planet, chasing cars, escaping from babies and being greatly confused by hats. Inquisitively they attempt to go where no Martian has gone before, will no barriers be too great to stop them posing for photos, and why are they so drawn to music? In the last few years the Martians have discovered life on Earth in loads and loads of places.. Highly inquisitive indoors, or out...
