A Sydney Puppet Theatre production

    Z for Giraffe   


About the show

Z for Giraffe is based on a true story that began nearly 200 years ago in the age of enlightenment. This beautiful puppet theatre experience tells the story of Zeraffa, a young giraffe captured in Africa and sent as a gift to the King of France.

Z for Giraffe tells of her journey to Paris by river, sea and land. This tall and graceful creature became the darling of Paris and the muse of artists and fashion designers.

Z for Giraffe beautifully incorporates a number of puppetry styles including marionettes, hand puppets and shadow puppets. The puppeteers also interact as storytellers, actors and musicians.

This show has been performed at festivals and events in Australia and in Singapore.
