Spare Parts Puppet Theatre offers a range of performances perfectly suited to your Festival or Event.

“The roving Aqua Sapiens brought so many smiles to faces as they moved through the crowd and were the most photographed performers at the festival!” – Events Officer, Araluen Chilli Festival.

From roving entertainment that will interact with your crowds, to puppet making workshops for families to participate in together, we have something to suit your next big event. We are also able to work with schools or community groups within your catchment to create works of scale for your event.

In 2016 Spare Parts entertained crowds at events such as PlayGroup WA’s Annual Fun Day, The Old Perth Road Markets, The Angelo Street Festival, Joondalup Festival, Araluen’s Chilli Festival, Perth College Creative Arts Day and the Maylands Street Festival.

In 2017 we made appearances at the Joondalup Festival, the 2017 Rotary Conference, Syren Street Festival in Rockingham and York Festival.

In 2018, we showcased our large scale work String Symphony at APAM.  Bleach* Festival, Festival 2018  as part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Wind on Water Festival in Geraldton, Stretch Arts Festival Mandurah and Flipside at Esplanade, Theatres on the Bay in Singapore.

String Symphony also took a trip to the Sunshine Coast where it was featured as part of the fantastic Horizon Festival program. The festival ran from 24 August to 2 September 2018 and festival goers got a chance to bring our giant illuminated puppet to life! String Symphony took one final international trip before the end of an exciting 2018, when travelled to Malaysia in December to perform at Desaru Coast Resort.
