PUPPET PEO­PLE: A SNAP­SHOT OF AUS­TRALIAN PUPPETRY

Where Gold Coast - - What’s On Brisbane -

The fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory of puppetry in Australia is ex­plored in this free exhibition now show­ing at the Queens­land Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre. Puppetry ar­rived in Australia in the form of Punch and Judy shows in the 1840s. Since that time, a rich tra­di­tion of Aus­tralian puppetry per­for­mance has grown to en­com­pass a mul­ti­tude of styles from tra­di­tional to avant-garde, of­ten re­flect­ing so­cial and cul­tural change. This exhibition fea­tures more than 50 pup­pets, and show­cases just some of the peo­ple and com­pa­nies who brought the pup­pets to life.

Un­til 27 Jan­uary, Tony Gould Gallery, Cre­morne The­atre, QPAC, cnr Grey and Mel­bourne Streets, South Bank. 136 246. qpac.com.au
