This year marks Spare Parts Puppet Theatre’s 40th anniversary, and the seventh annual collaboration between the Fremantle-based company and WAAPA’s Performance Making students. This exciting partnership introduces our students to the world of visual storytelling through the physical and imaginative demands of puppet theatre. For their final show before they graduate, all of the students’ creative inventiveness will be let loose to bring Spare Parts’ history, building, surrounding parkland, and favourite puppets to magical life! Under the direction of Michael Barlow, SPPT’s Associate Director, the students will create a promenade performance as the centrepiece of celebrations of 40 years of contemporary puppetry, made in wonder.
