The Melbourne Festival of Puppetry 2017

The Melbourne Festival of Puppetry 2017  was an incredible array of puppetry to be experienced from across Australia and across the world. This years program included special performances from Anino Shadowplay Collective (Philipines), People Who Play With Theatre (New Zealand) as well as performances by the world-renowned Australian puppeteer Richard Bradshaw (NSW, Australia) to mention but a few. New to the festival this year was a workshop program for children and a professional development program for adults, including special guest workshop leader, Sorn Soran (Cambodia). There were free puppet events daily and performances across La Mama’s venues for all ages.

The festival will return during July 2020. For further information, contact us here.


The Melbourne Festival of Puppetry was supported by Creative Victoria, the City of Melbourne, La Mama Theatre, Lemony S Puppet Theatre and proudly sponsored by Creature Technology Company.
