Although she has not per­formed with Dado be­fore, she di­rected him in her Help­mann Award nom­i­nated work precipice last year.

“It’s a re­ally lovely team and our dance back­grounds do help, although there’s a lot more to con­sider,” Ogle said.

“I have to be con­stantly dili­gent of the ma­nip­u­la­tion of the pup­pet; the pup­pet has to lead the move­ment more than my body lead­ing it.”

The 45-minute pro­duc­tion is suit­able for all ages.

“It’s a whole pack­age deal and I’m re­ally en­joy­ing the chal­lenges of the new role and work­ing in a new en­vi­ron­ment with dif­fer­ent peo­ple.”
