New Puppetry Works By Tasmanian Artists

This is an entertaining program consisting of three short works, devised by and featuring five talented women.

Underground | Dancenorth

Set on the platform of an underground train station, Underground is a compelling glimpse into the personalities of six commuters as they wait, eat, flirt, read, smoke … and allow their fragile psyches to slowly unravel.

Helena and the Journey of Hello | Terrapin Puppet Theatre

Terrapin Puppet Theatre’s exploration of ‘digital puppetry’ continues with this latest work, inspired by playing around with mobile phones.

Don't Say The Words | Tasmanian Theatre Company

Stunningly staged in a small cube of a set, Don’t say the Words is a retelling of Aeschylus’ Agamemnon in a contemporary context.

Bombshells | Tasmanian Theatre Company

This is the first production from the new Tasmanian Theatre Company and kicks things off with a bang. This is a lively and entertaining show featuring six strong performances by an all female cast.

The set-up is simple: an actor reads poems by Auden while black and white photographs of New York are shown on a screen behind him.

Perfectly Secret is a fun approach to dance and, rather unexpectedly, offers insightful comment on the lives of today's young women.

Origins

The show starts with everyone chatting around a kitchen table, sharing stories and jokes, looking through a photo album. From there music just seems to happen.

We Belong(ed) Together: The Rickie Lee Jones Story

Sylvia Cornes certainly looked the part of Rickie Lee Jones with a sheer black mesh dress, a top hat with feathers and bare feet.

The Boy From Oz

One of the finest pieces of collective ensemble works seen for many years in Perth.

Magic Mike Live

Yes, the bodies you see are perfect specimens of sculptured sixpacks and biceps you could walk over and get at least 2000 steps in. But they are muscles moving bodies in marvellous ways. These boys can dance and every movement is potent.

Shrek The Musical

With the world struggling to find a new norm in these ever-changing circumstances, never has the phrase “the show must go on” been more apparent. 

Skylight | Verendus Theatrical/Red Phoenix Theatre

This is a production of which any director, cast and theatre company should be proud.
