Andrea Berg

Task

For Andrea Berg’s „Atlantis“ tour, show-producer DJ Bobo approached us to help integrate Andrea’s favourite stuffed animal into the show. With only a photo of the turtle for inspiration, prop-art designed and built a turtle costume called “Sushi”.

We started with the head. First sculpted from clay, later to be cast in carbon-fibre. Other body parts were made from foam sculpted and shaped, coated and painted.

We made final adjustments on-location, at rehearsal, to ensure the dancer inside was comfortable- and that the movements were fun and authentic.
