Get to know the people behind the puppets: Rules of Summer edition

We would like to introduce you to the Rules of Summer performers. They embody one of the Spare Parts core initiatives to cultivate the Western Australian artistic community. We employ 50+ artists for a cumulative 90 weeks of employment each year. We did the math and that works out to approximately 2 paid opportunities for WA artists every week of the year. Spare Parts Puppet Theatre is a leading puppetry training and development provider with global connections.

Through early career development like our FirstHand training and mentorship program, or Australia’s only tertiary unit in Puppetry in partnership with WAAPA, through to our Company Associates Program, Spare Parts is committed to supporting and encouraging artists throughout their careers: emerging, mid-career and established. In addition to these programs, Spare Parts offers paid employment opportunities through in-theatre seasons, touring programs, School of Puppetry, and festival and event presentations including contracts for performers, designers, writers, puppet makers and other creatives.

Now, sit back, read on and learn about ‘always’ rules, finding inspiration in the everyday, the most important senses, and how to become a performer from the inspiring people on stage in Rules of Summer!
