The Last Numbat at Wild Things: Perth Festival Takes Over Perth Zoo on Sunday 28 February

The Last Numbat will be at Wild Things at the Perth Zoo on Sunday 28 Feb, 2021.

The Last Numbat, a giant 10m-long numbat puppet that children can help move to tell a story of survival, sustainability  and cooperation. This interactive sculptural performance will be on the main lawn from 10am until 4:30pm and we will also have fun workshops for you to participate in.

Other special human guests during Sunday’s two three-hour sessions include music acts Perth Symphony Orchestra performing songs for Tricia the elephant, Grace Barbe, De Cuba Son, Soukouss Internationale and authors James Foley, Frane Lessac, Alton Walley, Kathryn Lefroy and Helen Milroy.

Throughout the day there will be animal illustration classes, creature choreography, Noongar storytelling, survival-skills sessions and an around-the-world animal passport trail. With a focus on Perth Zoo’s conservation work, learn about the numbat, the western swamp tortoise and the red tail black cockatoo in this exciting family day out.

This large scale interactive sculptural work has been created by Australia’s renowned puppetry company, Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, with designer and puppet maker Leon Hendroff. Commissioned by the City of South Perth, this world-first premiered at the 2020 South Perth Sounds concert.
