Baby Skybax


Character: A hatchling skybax who receives the aid of Alex (a former Skybax rider) to learn the ways of flight.

Puppet: The beack opens and closes with a lever disguised as one of his tiny feet. The wings have joints of armature wire, and are unfolded and the puppet hung by a harness to a balanced suspended rod. The puppeteer (flying high herself on silks) gives him a push and away he goes, circling high above the heads of the audience.
