The road to the Tree of Life is long and treacherous, and the forest is littered with the remains of unfortunate travelers…
Life is a Carousel is a chaotic whirlwind of psychotic mayhem, a grotesquery of improbable creatures and their efforts to make sense of a senseless world.
Life is a Carousel premiered to a sold out season at the Melbourne International Festival of Puppetry, La Mama Theatre, Carlton, Melbourne, 2017.
