In September, 2017 we travelled to Serbia and Romania to perform
at International Children's Festivals in Subotica and Iasi. This is the
first time an Australian company has performed at either festival.
The show was a hit and we had an article in the
National Serbian Newspaper and an interview on Serbian National radio.

In July, 2017 we performed "Nella's Wings" at the Melbourne Festival of
Puppetry. This was our first performance at the iconic La Mama
Theatre which is celebrating 50 years of continuous operation this
year. Thank you to Lemony S and La Mama for inviting us to be part
of a great festival.
It was great to get a lovely revue in the Sun Herald
'Nella's Wings, one of the joys of the festival ..."
We recently has the great privilege of being joint tutors with
Richard Bradshaw (world shadow puppet master) at ImaginArta. Last
year Richard invited us to work with him on a documentary for SBS
called "Shadows of Displacement" which will soon be screened at the
Hot Docs 2016 film festival in Toronto.
The Sydney Puppet Theatre was awarded
for Oh Rats!
at the World Carnival of Puppetry in Kuching,
Since then "Oh Rats!" has been seen at the
AnimArt Festival in Poland and performances in Ireland.
“During the 35 minute performance here, the master
puppeteers demonstrated their flawless handling of the
puppets while interacting with the audience through
their hilarious wit and acting skills.”
