SWAMP – at the end of the world 

A dark, brooding world seething with life and disaster.

Starring iconic Australian characters, brought to life in Snuff Puppets handmade style:

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 Red-Bellied Black Snake devouring the cosmos.

A series of vignettes reveal nature’s fraught relationship with humans before Swamp plunges into a surreal and abstract world, with transforming sets, huge projections, and live music.

Swamp’s sold-out two-week season at Snuffest Festival earned it a spot in Melbourne’s Top 10 Shows of 2023 by ‘My Melbourne Arts’.

Swamp is now seeking touring opportunities both in Australia and internationally in 2024 and beyond.
