Boats

Terrapin Puppet Theatre

About

Tasmania’s revered contemporary puppet theatre company, Terrapin, joins the Spiegeltent family program with their much-loved production Boats.

Written by Finegan Kruckemeyer, Boats is classic storytelling with skilful physical performance. The audience experiences the world transformed around them using everyday objects found in a boat’s galley. Each scene is a unique and highly inventive use of space and puppetry; a boat is made from a piece of bread; an island is made from a hat; a circus is made from a jacket and a storm is made in a teacup.

Winner of the 2012 Helpmann Award: Best Presentation for Children, Boats is a moving story with a twist at the end which will leave a lump in your throat and a smile on your face.
