  • Giant puppet

Mambo Jumbo is an ambulatory creation halfway between a masquerade and a fashion show. It’s a carnival parade of giants and characters with flashy looks and moods, whose infectious euphoria is transmitted like a virus through rhythm, dance, humour and derision. Mambo Jumbo is above all a call to everyone to come and parade, move and dance, to create the conditions for a pandemic of good humour that spreads without distinction, without barriers, without borders.
