VALUES

Exploring what it is to be human

Through puppetry we engage with timeless and universal issues, exploring and celebrating what it is to be human. We encourage people to pause, wonder and reflect, helping to grow and nourish their emotional intelligence and to understand the human condition.

Excellence

We strive for personal and professional excellence in everything we do. We treasure our audiences with an uncompromising commitment to quality. Our puppets are beautifully and superbly hand-crafted. We are leaders in the art form and artist development for puppetry.

Imagination

We create adventurous and enriching theatre that expands the way audiences see, feel and experience the world. We are courageous. We experiment with new ideas and push the boundaries of the art form. Our artistic offerings heighten the imagination. We create contemporary puppetry works, fusing puppetry, dance, new media, visual arts, music, theatre and adaptations of popular literary works.

Joy

We are an energetic, fun-loving and playful company. We bring joy to our audience through offering a mirror to their lives and a window to the lives of others.
