From Cher to Katie Perry, The Puppet Studio creates and builds show-stopping, memorable characters and walk-abouts for live shows and concerts. Our 5 person dance rig is particularly popular—only the dancer in the middle is an actual dancer. The other 4 “dancers” are puppets attached to a rig who do coordinated dance moves as the actual dancer moves.
Here are the gingerbread men in action during the finale for Katy Perry’s California Dreams tour in Liverpool.
For Cher’s Caeser’s Palace show, The Puppet studio designed, created and built Village People dancers. Cher’s many costume changes necessitated music and dancing as she disappeared, and the Village People dance rig performed during the 70’s era costume change. It was an exciting part of the show as no one anticipated such an elaborate performance during a costume change.
