Tales from Outer Suburbia is a curiously fun celebration of the magic that happens in the most familiar places.
Be taken on a journey of discovery through your own backyard where you might just see a peanut-sized, pantry-dwelling creature, a massive wise buffalo on a vacant block or a row-boat floating magically through the streets.
With a lively and imaginative mix of real-time animation, projection, miniature marionettes, gigantic rod puppets and playful performers this world premiere season will capture hearts, minds and imaginations across generations.
Presented in partnership with Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.
Special thanks to Eleonora Barcellona, Lisa Bonobo, Umberto Margio and Olivia Tartaglia
