Arthur is Ireland’s most politically incorrect puppet! He drinks, smokes and chases women.
Although he is well known in Ireland and has travelled across the water to America, he did not achieve international fame until the YouTube clip ‘Giant puppet’ went viral in 2011.
The performance is based on a spontaneous response to situations that occur on the public street.
Cillian, the puppeteer is, at 59, a master at interacting and causing chaos with his audience. Arthur was one of the first puppets made by Workhouse Arts Studio 27 years ago.
