In cities and towns across the country people have been seeing a mysterious creature. Some say they’ve seen it at night, others say they’ve seen it on the bus. One boy said it eats shoes, but one thing is for certain – nobody knows what it is.
Beastie is a groundbreaking real-world adventure for children. Adults gawp, some run away - if you come face to face with Beastie what will you do?
We made Beastie with Libby Curley, Bob Karper, Dvora Liberman and Steven Loader who peform the project as it tours. Video material by Stuart Silver. The design collaboration for Beastie and construction of the creature was by Darryl Worbey Studios.
