Our new show SWAMP will premiere in May 2022.
SWAMP is an oily primordial muck, where life begins with blood and ends with ash.
A Mosquito, Magpie, Lyrebird, Koala, Snake and Frilled-Neck Lizard each eke out their quiet lives. A Thylacine paces back and forth. A dormant whirlpool begins to swirl, descending into a world of dust and blood, water and flame, strangled trees, dissolved skin, pools of tears, blankets of bones. The Serpent consumes the scene, and then itself. Whether it’s a cycle or an ending is up to us.
SWAMP blends Snuff Puppets’ handmade aesthetic, irreverent performance style and dynamic use of music with live projection mapping and transformative sets.
A darkly comic allegory of violent transformation on the cusp of the Anthropocene.
SWAMP will be performed in our Footscray studio over three evenings, & broadcast online.
