Whale Song is our newest large-scale production, with it’s launch date set for June 7th at Port Macquarie’s 2024 Artwalk.

Keen to get involved? See below! We still have workshop and volunteer opportunities for our show in Newcastle’s 2024 New Annual.

Whale Song is a multimedia outdoor theatre procession that celebrates the humpback whale migration season. The show includes video projection, giant illuminated puppets, and community creature creations, all led by a moving soundscape embedded within our puppets. During the event local community and audience participants are invited into the show; through both workshops prior to our performance, and invitation to join in our moving parade.

We’re thrilled at our return to Port Macquarie ArtWalk and Newcastle New Annual this year to run the first season of our new show. See below for photos of the launch at this year’s ArtWalk:
