Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones

Regional Arts WA

Award winning shadow puppetry made from bits of rubbish and house hold junk!

Flying chickens, brain transplants and sneaky ninjas! Bunk Puppets have captivated international audiences with their inventive approach to shadow puppetry. In Sticks Stones Broken Bones, a dozen shadow puppet characters are assembled on the spot from household items, old toys, bits of fluff and card and then transformed into live cartoons on the screen. With all of the puppetry performed in front of the screen, the audience gets a cheeky peek into how the magic is made.

Delighting audiences around the world from Edinburgh to Tokyo, via Dubai and Madrid, this heart- warming show will squeeze every bit of imagination it can from the objects you use and see every day. Directed by Jeff Achtem, and performed by Hamish Fletcher, Sticks Stones Broken Bones uncovers the hidden characters that lurk in the closet. With hardly a word spoken, the show creates an imaginative and inventive approach to shadow puppetry- in a way that you’ve never seen before. Suitable for all ages (adults will love it) but some bits may be a wee bit scary for under 6 years. A feast for the imagination!
