June Regular Sunday Performances - "Z for Giraffe"
Regular performances are held every Sunday at 11AM. The program changes monthly, June featuring "Z for Giraffe". Performed by the Sydney Puppet Theatre, "Z for Giraffe" is a beautiful puppet theatre experience based on the true story of Zeraffa, a little Giraffe, and her extraordinary journey.
The story starts in 1826 with the Pasha of Egypt needing a truly remarkable gift to impress the King of France, Charles X. The gift was a young giraffe but even little giraffes are big! So how do you get such an astonishing gift from the Sudan, to Egypt and all the way to Paris?
As she travelled by river, sea and land she created a stir. The people of France had never seen a giraffe before so you can imagine how astonished everyone was to see this new creature. She became the darling of Paris and the muse of artists and fashion designers.
This beautifully crafted production seamlessly alternates between different styles of puppetry. This is an exotic expedition of puppetry and storytelling for everyone!
