Ocho the Octopus is a ground breaking, inflatable octopus, with 8 independently articulated legs able to curl and sway in a lifelike fashion for walkabout performances. Ocho is huge - 4m high and 7m wide - maximising the immediate wow-impact on spectators. At the same time, its delicate control mechanism enables the puppet to build spontaneous rapport with its audience. Lightweight and easy to manoeuvre by a single puppeteer, it is nimble and responsive to those it meets. With soft skin it is tactile and safe for close contact with adults and children.
Ocho is unique in that most existing in ... flatable creations, whilst impressive, are lifeless and lack that quality which deeply engages the audience.
Ocho is fitted with LED lights for stunning illuminated performances at night and in the winter. The lighting can change Ocho’s colour, making it versatile for different themed events such as underwater, Halloween, Christmas, Disco and Out of Space.
Ocho can be packed down easily, making it perfect for international shows, fitting into two normal sized flight cases. New to 2018, it has already travelled the UK and Europe.
Artistic Director Tim Davies is a sculptor and innovative engineer with a passion for large-scale, kinetic creations and high impact spectacles.
Tim has designed and built a stunning array of large-scale puppets for prestigious outdoor events: from multi-award winning shows in the Spanish carnival scene, to the innovative Arachnobot which is now globally renowned, having performed to crowds of hundreds of thousands of people in four different continents.
With a keen talent for marrying strength and structure with movement and fluidity, Tim has energetically embraced an eclectic range of ... commissions for London’s leading theatre companies. He creates sets and apparatus, working closely and intuitively with circus acts, aerialists, physical performers and dancers.
The Discovery Channel said:

Insomniac Inc said:
"Your piece embodies the perfect representation of both the antagonist of our show, and a marvellous piece of art!"
