The Dab Hands are looking for each other. They are gathering to give the MANIPULATE Festival opening a big hand. But they keep missing each other. You’d think that would be impossible given that they are 3 metres tall and light up like beacons in the night, but they’re not the brightest all the same. Please help them where you can, and give them a wave if you see one!

The Dab Hands are an invitation to play for any age. They are giant colourful light-up hand puppets bringing playfulness, colour and warmth to the chilly February streets.
