Having earned its merit and popularity at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, award-winning performer Jens Altheimer brings his newest show ‘Loose Ends’ to the Ipswich Art Gallery to entertain Brisbane Kids for the holidays. The award-nominated family show is being described as the opportunity to ‘Experience extraordinary visual theatre, set in a wondrous tinkering heaven!’.

Loose Ends invites the audience into a world where gadgets are poetic, puppets are naughty, machines are untamed and circus tricks pop-up when you’re least expecting it! It is a world where familiar household items are transformed and used in ways you would least expect, leaving the audience stunned by the amazing contraptions they have seen come to life before their very eyes.

Puppets are used, along with everyday items and the talented Paris-trained, multi-disciplinary circus artist and quirkologist, Altheimer, brings a quality, creative and quirky tale to life.

This ‘out of the ordinary’ show deals with the heart-warming themes of friendship, acceptance and loyalty, presented with an energised mix of circus and puppetry.

Loose Ends is a charming, fun and engaging show that is recommended for Brisbane Kids aged 5 years and over and their parents (as there are some scenes that may frighten children under 5).
