Puppet & Mask

The Beginning of Everything, a collaboration with Fusion Theatre for [SUB]URBAN project, City of Greater Dandenong

We facilitate intensive workshops with community groups and schools, working with them to build giant puppets and masks. Some of the things we have built are:


    • A giant starfish for DVA Theatre‘s Spin me a Yarn of the Ocean and the Invisible Dances (2019),
    • Giant puppet show in Harmony Square, Dandenong, in partnership with Fusion Theatre, as part of City of Dandenong’s [SUB]URBAN program (2018),
    • Masks for Barking Spider Theatre’s Unmasked project (2016),
    • The Enchanted Ark puppet and family fun day, Hawthorn Community House, Honourable Mention Live Local Awards, (2008).
