A cuddly toy monkey hanging on a wall like a Jumping Jack.

With a friendly "Hello"  the puppet starts to react to the visitors movements and immediately apes every gesture with its arms and legs, its head and body.


You can let the ape act smoothly or invite him to a wild dance.

But in a subtle way the monkey asks for another move you have never ever performed before.


Playing the game you will loose control unconsciously

and after the seductive encounter you might start wondering

what is all this monkey business about?

who pulls the strings?
