In July we performed "Nella's Wings" at the Melbourne Festival of Puppetry. This was our first performance at the iconic La Mama Theatre which is celebrating 50 years of continuous operation this year. Thank you to Lemony S and La Mama for inviting us to be part of a great festival.

It was great to get a lovely revue in the Sun Herald

We recently has the great privilege of being joint tutors with Richard Bradshaw (world shadow puppet master) at ImaginArta. Last year Richard invited us to work with him on a documentary for SBS called "Shadows of Displacement" which will soon be screened at the Hot Docs 2016 film festival in Toronto.
