BIG NAZO is an international touring group of Larger-than-Life sized, audience-interactive mutant puppet-creatures and masked musicians who invade streets and stages around the world.

BIG NAZO’s misfit tribe of trolls, extra-terrestrials and human-animal hybrids combine comedy, live music and a variety of puppet, mask and wearable sculpture techniques to create visual spectacles and audience-interactive alien configurations.

BIG NAZO LAB’s  “PUTTPUTT DRAGON-BIRD”

This Dragon Bird was installed for PVD Putt Putt in Armory Park, Providence, RI.

The Dragon Bird, the last of it’s species and with no hope of generating
more of it’s own kind, stares down patiently & forever into it’s nest at
the little objects and golf balls that resemble the tender shelled eggs
from which it once hatched.
Participants are invited to add yet another egg-ball of hope for the
one-of-a-kind creature to ponder and dream upon.
