Around the World with Thurtinkle
the often elusive attention of children...a series of beautiful
string and rod figures and props. This low key but admirable entertainment
absorbs them completely" - Time Out
Join Thurtinkle, just returned from his
holiday around the world! Back at his tiny house, he meets his old
friend Rachel, and together they tell many enchanting stories of
Meet the Peacock Who Was Too Proud, in a
tale from India, the Dream Time animals from Aboriginal Australia
(with the Kookaburra, the Long-Necked Tortoise and the Carpet Snake)
and a young boy and girl from Brazil in a colourful and dramatic
tale which tells the story of night and day.
This show incorporates a wide range of styles of performance and
puppetry techniques. The stories are creation myths from India,
Brazil and Australia.
A workshop in puppetry styles and creation
mythology can accompany this show.
