Tassie's Terrapin off to Denmark
Every day, more and more Australian puppeteers are seen entering the international arena! Tasmanian puppet company, Terrapin Theatre, are heading off to Denmark in honour of a classic storyteller. The celebrated company will be presenting their latest school production, The Storyteller’s Shadow to Danish audiences in August and September this year. The production, written by world renowned puppeteer, Richard Bradshaw OAM and directed by Anne Forbes, incorporates several of Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories – The Ugly Duckling, The Little Match Girl, The Shirt Collar and The Princess and the Pea. The performance mixes traditional and 21st century puppetry styles and techniques, such as shadow puppets, paper cut outs, projections and sound-scaping.
