Trash Magic – A blacklight Puppet Theatre

Concert or Performance

30 Jun 2022 to 21 Jul 2022 Daily Event

Experience the magic of blacklight theatre!

This show is in Auslan and English.

Trash Magic uses the magic of blacklight theatre to create a puppet show for the young and the young at heart.

Trash Magic tells a story about family, nature and MESS! Ruby, a girl who is deaf, goes camping with her family in the NT bush. Ruby loves to be in nature and her family loves to have fun. She watches in horror as they set about making as much mess as possible.

Later that night Ruby wakes up to see that the rubbish is alive! The discarded rubbish has magically metamorphosed into the different animals from the bush, and they can talk!

This delightful project is presented by Artback NT and Luminous Productions, an all-abilities theatre company based in Darwin with an artist ensemble of multi-skilled performers of all abilities. The team have been experimenting with black light, the use of UV lights bouncing off the fluorescent and neon paints to create a truly magical and engaging puppet show for all ages.
