Sew Flunk Fury Wit

The company was founded by artistic director – Svend E. Kristensen (DK) – in 2013. He began his artistic career at the experimental music scene in Denmark in the early 80’s. Up through the years he has elaborated, developed and designed various life-sized puppets from materials such as carbon fibers, silicones and other composites.
