The brainchild of Tobias Husemann, the Dundu first made a name for themselves in 2006 at the opening ceremony of the Football World Cup. From Ibiza to Dubai, the glowing puppets have been on the move ever since. A huge articulated puppet, Dundu means “you and you” in German, a rather odd expression which reminds us that we are a tiny bit of a whole and that we can accomplish great things all together. The Dundu first encountered the Worldbeaters led by Chris Maines-Beasley and Alex Tustin at the Chinese New Year celebrations in Hong Kong in 2016. The artists became firm friends prompting the British drummers to cross Channel in 2019 to dance with the Dundu on the banks of the Saône for their first Festival of Lights.
