Surgeons Headgear (Butcher)

These Surgeons heads were specifically designed and made for the theatrical performance of Butcher at Chapter in Cardiff, UK in 2011. They were worn by two of the performers and due to various steel attachments such as a Lazy Tongue and a Probe with a light on the tip they were interactive with audience members and the musicians. Such interaction was aided by staging theatre-in-the round in the style of a circus big-top.

Although, lightweight the heads were challenging and possessed a life of their own which added to the hilarity of the dark material under examination.
