Boats

Terrapin Puppet Theatre

Tasmania’s revered contemporary puppet theatre company, Terrapin, joins the Spiegeltent family program with their much-loved production Boats.

Written by Finegan Kruckemeyer, Boats is classic storytelling with skilful physical performance. The audience experiences the world transformed around them using everyday objects found in a boat’s galley. Each scene is a unique and highly inventive use of space and puppetry; a boat is made from a piece of bread; an island is made from a hat; a circus is made from a jacket and a storm is made in a teacup.

Winner of the 2012 Helpmann Award: Best Presentation for Children, Boats is a moving story with a twist at the end which will leave a lump in your throat and a smile on your face.

 

Director –  Frank Newman

Writer – Finegan Kruckemeyer

Composer – Matthew Fargher

Production Design – Greg Methé

Costume Desig – Roz Wren

Performed by – Quinn Griggs and Jeff Michel

Production Manager – Andrew MacDonald

 

Terrapin Puppet Theatre is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.
