 You and Me and the Space Between

Terrapin Puppet Theatre – Australia

The island is sinking. Its adults are useless. Time for the kids to save the day.

The island of Proud Circle springs a leak and its citizens must find a way to stop their home from disappearing. It takes the wondering mind of a child to save the island, its people and their ways.  Adventures happen, horizons widen and important things are said.

From the mind of Australia’s most accomplished children’s playwright, Finegan Kruckemeyer, comes a tale of wonder and invention that is brought to life in unexpected ways. Storytelling, choreographed projections and live drawn animation explore the plight of refugees fleeing environmental change through the eyes of a child. Step inside a picture book with artist Tom O’Hern and Scottish storyteller Rosalind Sydney, amidst a paper set that is cut, ripped, patched and manipulated live to create a world of play.

You and Me and the Space Between is supported by Australia Council for the Arts, Ministry for the Arts and the Tasmanian Government.

“The production was rich with childlike whimsy and wisdom... a memorable journey for the audience between two imaginary cultures.” Real Time Arts
