The Farmer's
Daughter

Inspired by real stories from rural Australia, The Farmer’s Daughter celebrates those who live and work on the land.

The Farmer’s Daughter

The Farmer’s Daughter explores the bond between a girl and her grandfather. Audiences will experience a visual celebration of a family’s connection and powerful relationship to their environment.

Inspired by real-life stories from rural Australia, The Farmer’s Daughter tackles themes of change and resilience while celebrating the lives of the people who live and work on the land. Puppets, performers, lights and sound vividly recreate rural Australia and invite a deeper understanding of the families who call it home.

“Complex and incredibly beautiful, Farm tells its story without flinching”.
