MPAC breaks through the stratosphere with innovative new puppet show

Slapdash Galaxy is the tale of two brothers, Sam and Junior, who must flee their barren planet and embark on an epic quest across the galaxy.

The award-winning Bunk Puppets, creators of Swamp Juice and Sticks Stones Broken Bones are back on tour in Australia, with a new, delicious D.I.Y theatre event.

Using the contents of his cleaning closet, Bunk Puppets’ Hamish Fletcher conjures up an astonishing lo-fi theatrical wizardry  using only old boxes, bubble wrap, drinking straws, tennis balls, ping pong bats and old toys.

It’s a crazy shadow puppet universe, all made up from bits of rubbish. 

Slapdash Galaxy by Bunk Puppets

With their unusual, comical and hugely imaginative approach to puppetry and theatrical effects making, Bunk Puppets have earned international acclaim with recent tours through Egypt, Japan, China, UK, Germany, Dubai, New Zealand and Off Broadway in New York City.

So forget what you think you know about shadow puppets, buckle-in and tear open your imagination for an epic journey with two brothers as they battle the bad guys, and find strength in each other at warp speed.

The show runs 11am and 2pm Friday April 21 and 2pm and 6pm on Saturday April 22.
