Puppetry arrived in Australia in the form of Punch and Judy shows in the 1840’s. Since that time, a rich tradition of Australian puppetry performance has grown, often reflecting social and cultural change. Puppetry is driven by the passion and skill of artisans and storytellers – puppet people – who in this age of technology continue to enthral audiences young and old as they bring their wonderful creations to life in real time.
Venue: Tony Gould Gallery, QPAC (via Cremorne Theatre entrance), Cultural Precinct, South Bank, Brisbane
