Upcoming Shows


Boats is a story about a sailor called Jof, told by his friend Nic. The two of them are life-long friends who meet through bizarre circumstances involving a chicken, a deserted island and a sombrero. It is a story of two mariners fleeing their past and embracing adventure. The play is enacted with puppets, acrobatics, singing and sound effects created on stage with two microphones, one of which goes in water. The magic unfolds in front of the audience from simple objects that would be found on a boat's galley. The sound effects are created live, a boat is cut from bread, a bird tied from a rope, a circus hides in a jacket. And finally a storm is made with a teacup.

"A zephyr of pure originality and lyricism flows through this work." (The Advertiser, Adelaide)

Boats is a story full of adventure, with a twist at the end which will leave a lump in your throat and a smile on your face.

By Finegan Kruckemeyer.  Directed by Frank Newman.
