Feral Theatre was invited to continue the Funeral for Lost Species theme at the Green Man Festival in Wales.
Inspired by the royal funeral traditions of Bali, we made the withy sarcophagus of a Bali Tiger (last seen in 1937). Festival participants then created the sarcophagus coverings from rubbish collected around the festival site. Children created a tin can gamelan orchestra, and we carried the Tiger aloft accompanied by percussion and chanting in a funeral procession on the last day of the festival. That night, we cremated the Bali Tiger on a huge pyre.
