This is Hugh the cycle powered Mammoth! His bike frame is made from recycled bicycles and his fur and skin is made using only single use plastics – like net onion bags and shopping bags.

Inside, Hugh has a sound system specially created by sound artist Stuart Moore. Rost Productions is also working on a walkabout show which centers around Hugh and is choreographed by Manuela Benini of Selva Invasion.
The piece imagines a world drowning in plastic where all the creatures have over time evolved into plastic beings and where even nature itself has become toxic. Hugh will be highlighting the problems of, and extensive use of, single use plastic by combining performance, sound movement and audience interaction.
Hugh the Mammoth is available for events, festivals and parades.
