SWAMP - At the end of the World ➙ 6 - 16 Sep 2023

"Phenomenal... unforgettable... in awe of the mechanics... astouding finale." - My Melbourne Arts

SNUFFEST opens with Snuff Puppets’ major new work

SWAMP – At The End Of The World.

An immense show, with giant puppets, transforming sets, original music & huge projections.  

Starring iconic Australian creatures, handmade by Snuff Puppets – a crafty Magpie; a bloodthirsty Mosquito; a dopey Koala; an egocentric Lyrebird; a skittish Frilled-Neck Lizard; a grand old Thylacine; a poisonous Cane Toad; and a 22-meter Serpent ouroboros devouring the cosmos.
