International Touring


In September, 2017 we travelled to Serbia and Romania to perform "Nella's Wings" 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.
