FREE TIX - Stark and DormyIn a small town, trouble is brewing...

The latest creation by local award-winning outfit Bunk Puppets, Stark and Dormy is the ultimate dark comedy adventure featuring puppetry, sketch comedy, and unabashedly cool Lo-Fi effects.

Weaving together the lives of several outlandish characters living in a seaside town, Stark and Dormy meshes a struggling theme park owner with a dark secret, a teenage girl losing touch with her father, a captive ape plotting escape, a vain restaurateur desperate to be on the culinary cutting edge... and a hungry alien creature just about to crash-land.

Part Sci-Fi spoof and part social satire, master storytellers Bunk Puppets use a blend of puppetry and sketch comedy to create an entertaining universe steeped in imagination and creativity, all duly lacquered with a good dose of dark wit.

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Bunk Puppets are a multi-award winning company creating cutting edge shadow puppet theatre. Running since 2010, they have traversed the globe and built an outstanding international reputation with their absurdist visual stories.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream | 2021 Adelaide Festival

The bewildering confusion between dream and reality begins before one takes one’s seat in the theatre. You have to negotiate a building site and enter the Adelaide Festival Theatre by a side entrance (how like slipping into dream that is!), and put on a mask, so that it seems that the audience is itself on stage.

Songs of Love and Death | Jane Sheldon and Alex Raineri

At this moment in our cultural history, as Australia emerges gradually from the restrictions imposed because of Covid 19, each live concert is a particularly reviving and refreshing experience.

A German Life | 2021 Adelaide Festival

The cast of one is Robyn Nevin, and it was no surprise that her performance was riveting.

Diana Doherty and Streeton Trio | 2021 Adelaide Festival

The revelation of this concert to me was that, yes, musicians, like audiences, have been starved of live performance opportunities for the last year, but that has given musicians plenty of time to practice, time that isn't always there during normal concert life for successful groups such as The Streeton Trio.

The Pulse | Gravity & Other Myths

What a Pulse the acrobats exhibited! What unanimity, what complicity in their formation and deformation of their complex body structures!
