Syed the Snake is very excited to be returning to bluedot festival as part of an ongoing collaboration with the Venom Scientists at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. It has been great to explore the creative potential and impact when combining the Arts with Science.
Syed makes people stop in their tracks, moving seamlessly through crowds hissing at people. It is both interactive and beautiful. You will generally find a number of children running about & playing around it, especially once they have realised it spits (squirts water) at them!
Syed is a 15 metre long Giant Cobra Snake Puppet was originally commissioned by the Arts Council along with a Giant Charmer Puppet in 2013 for Manchester Mega Mela.
