Throughout history and across all societies puppets have been valued as a form of artistic expression. A puppet can be any old inanimate object that comes to life by the hand and the ideas of the puppeteer.

Performances with puppets can be as diversified as the puppets themselves: From simple story telling through to very elaborate theatrical productions. The art of puppetry is a wonderful tool to bridge the gap between generations and diverse cultures.

We have some of New Zealand’s finest puppeteers joining us from all over the country.

- Anna Bailey: Internationally recognised Wellington puppeteer who creates small marionette shows from suitcases for family audiences.
- Dietlind Wagner: Stop motion animation specialist creator of Dede puppets.
- Norbert Hausberg: 30 years as a professional touring puppeteer.
- John Rew: Circus marionette extraordinaire.
- Dan Martin: Animatronics expert.
- CutAbove Academy: Special effects department (Diploma makeup students).

Entry into most of the shows is a gold-coin donation.
