League of Nations shadow puppetry this week!

A League of Nations is billed as 'an Australian independent artist collective who are performing an inter- dimensional shadow puppetry extravaganza by Team Awesome' is performing in Sydney this week.

Dark, dirty and hysterical, League of Shadows is the theatrical vision of Phil Lesnie and Rani Lukita. Struggling to subsist in the shadowlands at the end of the world, the eccentric cast of characters - teaming handmade puppets with a group of talented voice actors - features a shy radioactive Quasimodo, a diabolical mad scientist, an amputee love-interest, and a pathologically rude doomsday device.

They describe themselves as Tim Burton meets South Park, plus a soundtrack ranging from German Expressionist film score to alt country to Shoegazer. You can view some visuals from the production here!
