Terrapin explores digital puppetry, which uses new technologies and cross platform practice to continually challenge and redefine puppetry as a visual theatre form. Terrapin creates new works through research and developmental processes that are designed specifically for each work. While Terrapin reaches to the future in its exploration of form and storytelling styles, it does so with its feet firmly grounded in the age-old craft of puppetry and theatre’s rich traditions. Terrapin’s productions engage all age groups and are designed to tour. The company injects skills and programs into the Tasmanian community, entertaining family audiences and supporting and developing artists.
Marionetas de la Esquina, a puppet theater company from Mexico, has been entertaining children and adults since 1975 and performs shows both in English and Spanish. They have given more than 11,000 performances and 50 workshops and seminars. Since their creation, the company has helped disseminate and develop the art of puppetry in Mexico.
