TERRAPIN PUPPET THEATRE Established for over 35 years, Terrapin is the centre of excellence for contemporary puppetry in Australia creating puppetry-based performances for all ages. Telling sophisticated stories of humour and pathos, the company embraces new technologies whilst remaining true to the wonder and illusion resident in the ageold craft of puppetry. In its productions, the company aims to inspire families by encouraging them to express the power of their collective imagination through inventive play with the objects and devices that surround them. Terrapin injects skills and programs into the Tasmanian community, supporting and developing artists and touring nationally and internationally.
