“One of the funniest shows ever. Definitely in our top 10 best puppet works. Go see this people. It’s brilliant.” Sarah Kriegler, Artistic Director, Melbourne International Festival of Puppetry.
“The crowd that was absolutely glued to each show of the Pearly Whites installation. I’ve never seen a crowd so locked in to a performance at a festival!” Roland Fraval, Events Officer, City of Whittlesea
Join Dr Hal E. Tosis, world-renowned speleologist, for an in-depth study of one particularly fascinating fissure. Journey with him over the lip, through the spongy cavern and into the bowls of the earth.
‘Let’s do science!’
But what are these sugary meteorites and why is the cave so partial to them? Could they have something to do with the slimy creatures sucking on the pearly white stalagmites?
Pearly Whites is not just another story of good dental hygiene triumphing over plaque and tooth decay. It’s a chaotic slapstick puppet show, packed with adventure, subterranean exploration, battles with colossal bacteria, and ‘it’s behind you!’ moments guaranteed to leave children of all ages squealing with glee.
