Tackle happy in the third di­men­sion

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT'S ON -

bet­ter than see­ing per­form­ers do­ing tricks with their pri­vates, while wear­ing no more than their birthday suits? How about adding a gi­ant 3D screen for ex­tra in-your-face ac­tion,. The in­fa­mous troupe from over-18s cabaret show Puppetry of the Pe­nis re­turn with a new show per­formed live and in 3D. Au­di­ences will see the boys ma­nip­u­late their mem­bers live on stage and, at the same time, get the 3D ex­pe­ri­ence from the gi­ant screen. The new show uses the lat­est 3D pro­jec­tion tech­nol­ogy, with au­di­ence mem­bers given glasses to bet­ter ex­pe­ri­ence the as­ton­ish­ing and un­for­get­table an­cient Aus­tralian art of gen­i­tal origami. A head-shak­ing, out­ra­geously funny pro­duc­tion, Puppetry of the Pe­nis stars new-gen­er­a­tion pup­peteers Na­cho Re­gal and Sammy Longfel­low per­form­ing con­tor­tion­ist tricks that go by names like Weed Snip­per, Snail and Atomic Mush­room. Puppetry of the Pe­nis was first per­formed at the 1998 Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Com­edy Fes­ti­val. It toured Aus­tralia, New Zealand, the UK, Europe, Canada, the US, South Africa and Ar­gentina, and was the sub­ject of comic Mick Mol­loy’s 2000 doc­u­men­tary Tackle Happy.
