THIS SHOW IS NOW FINISHED
QPAC presents Sticks Stones Broken Bones at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in May 2017.
Sticks Stones Broken Bones
After touring the world and selling out shows in Edinburgh, Tokyo, Dubai, Beijing, NYC, Amsterdam and London, the extremely talented team from Bunk Puppets are returning to Brisbane with their unique, hilarious and delightful shadow puppet show.
The talented team manage to use everyday household items household items, old toys, bits of fluff and bits of card, and then transform them into live cartoons on screen. With all of the puppetry performed in front of the screen, the audience gets a cheeky peek into how the magic is made. And like watching a magician sharing his secrets the audience is instantly captivated and in awe as our eyes move between the puppeteer who manoeuvres these simple objects before light and the brilliant characters and tales they portray on the screen.
The puppeteer in this Australian production, himself is a masterful performer. He moves seamlessly between creating different objects comically for the audience before the light is flicked, the music starts and the audience is transformed into yet another magical shadow play using the newly created props. The plays themselves are enchanting. Short but sweet and in some places dark and disturbing but always with humour and beauty.
The show includes 12 shadow puppet characters that Brisbane Kids will be delighted to meet and be entertained by including flying chickens, brain transplants and sneaky ninjas making the show appeal to to all ages – including adults. Early on in the show it may seem quite dark as one of the first shadow plays sees one character performing a brain transplant on another. This is all done with great humour though and as the show progresses the fun, imagination and playful themes take over and wow the audience with a show they will have been glad they took the whole family to see.
