Flight to Fancy

We are taking a Flight to Fancy thanks to SBW Foundation

Flight to Fancy (Romanian version “Imaginarium” ) will go to ImPuls Festival Bucharest 2016

The artistic aim is to promote vibrant Australian theatre and give opportunities to Australian emerging artist to appreciate and enjoy puppet theatre in all its facets, both locally and internationally – exposing Australian arts to a larger audience.
This will build opportunities and capacity for the production and the Australian artists involved.
This like most of our productions is largely visually orientated and will be used to frame a number of puppet skits based around traditional fairy stories.
Our aim is that audiences and artists, here and internationally will be lead into a soaring of the imagination and an increased knowledge about puppetry – challenging concepts of arts and culture.

Stay Tuned for more news on the development of Flight to Fancy.


Youth can now ACTivate thanks to Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL

Thanks to Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL youth can now ‘ACTivate’.

ACTivate is an early intervention project using art, drama, dance and music to bring together diverse youth (especially at-risk, marginalised, refugee, newly arrived and/or from CALD backgrounds) to address issues affecting them such as anger, bullying and violence.

Through mentoring and workshops, the causes of unacceptable behaviour will be confronted and alternative courses of action explored. The issues raised and the young people’s responses will culminate in the presentation and/or production of artworks and events developed by the participants to be presented to their peers, families and the wider community to advocate and educate how to increase community harmony.
