Dead Puppet's Society's Argus

Dead Puppet Society Argus

Four performers, four pairs of hands and one little creature; the littlest of big adventures.

Step into this whimsical wonderland where table tops grow grass and water bottles become the depths of the ocean.

Making use of nothing but household objects and the performers' hands, Argus is a puppet show about a tiny creature who finds himself sent on an unexpected adventure. In a timeless world of colour and whimsy he journeys over vast terrain trying to find a home in a world where he just doesn't fit in.

This quietly touching show highlights the beauty of an impossible life; one that is full of playfulness, joy and laughter.

Argus will expand the imaginations of adults and children alike.

Be sure to watch Dead Puppet’s Society’s Argus from July 16 to 18, 2015 at Centre of Contemporary Arts Cairns.

The Dead Puppet Society is a design company and producer of new puppet-based visual theatre working between Australia and the United States. Uniting an old world aesthetic with cutting edge technical elements the company conjure immersive worlds where the mythic sits alongside the macabre and the old school meets the technological. The company is currently in residence at the New Victory Theatre in New York working on a stage adaptation of Tim Sharp's Laser Beak Man. They recently completed an eight-month residency at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn developing a new work, The Wider Earth, which was presented in May 2014 and has since been commissioned by the Queensland Theatre Company. Prior to this, they spent time in South Africa working alongside Handspring Puppet Company.
