Love Your MAMA

Congratulations Albury on your beautiful new MAMA. We had a fantastic Big Night Out celebrating with you.



MAMA’s Big Night Out

MAMA Albury bannerWe’re headed to Albury soon for the huge opening celebration party of MAMA Albury’s new art museum.

MAMA’s Big Night Out is being co-ordinated by Artistic Director, Elizabeth Walsh, “It’s more than a street party, it will be like a choreographed event in the square. If people are expecting balloons and sausage sizzles they’ll be disappointed, it’s going to be much more.”

Our Human Body Parts and Cows will be part of the fun and they sure are ready to party! We’re performing Friday 2 October and Saturday 3 OCtober.


Glow Festival

While we’re off in Japan making new puppets we haven’t forgotten you, Melbourne, our first love. Come and meet our Hand, Eye, Mouth and Foot in Prahran.

Our Human Body Parts will be performing at Stonnington’s Glow Festival.

14, 15, 21 & 22 August 5.40 to 8pm at Cato Street Car Park, Prahran VIC.
