Mirabelle the Snail is venturing out to Australia Day celebrations in Dandenong Park.
Picnics, lunch boxes and unsuspecting children beware – Mirabelle’s liable to leave no basket unturned in the never-ending quest for lunch.
We are going back to Come Together Festival and getting excited to come together again.
Congratulations Albury on your beautiful new MAMA. We had a fantastic Big Night Out celebrating with you.
Butcher wants to hitch his way to Albury to see MAMA. Will you stop for him?
Some memories from the flippin’ fantastic Flipside festival in Singapore.
We’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.”
2015 was our third year at Aarhus Festuge. Our puppets love getting up close and personal with the people of Aarhus, and our performers love visiting!
Our Tour Manager and Production Manager Katrina Chandra gave us the low down:
What surprising things have you learnt this time travelling with Snuff Puppets?
One of Aarhus’ famous old architects hated the church so much he put gargoyles and mad faces on all the buildings he designed, all pointing at the church.
What feedback did you get from audiences?
Audiences have been loving us here at Aarhus festival. Especially as seagulls have recently been declared a pest which can be shot (with a special license though, luckily no one has tried yet). As per usual kids ask if the puppets are real – one at the school we performed at today thought they were remote controlled robots…
What’s the most interesting/funny/weird experience while on tour?
How violent kids can be!
But seriously, being in international arts festivals is always great, we get to meet cool people and see great stuff, getting immersed in local culture as well as seeing amazing art from around the world.
