NAPPIES TO NAPPIES
(New project in development)
The last year has been a busy one; as a participant puppeteer in the Dead Puppet Society Academy, which developed an original story into a production that was presented to the public in association with The Brisbane Powerhouse, a Russian trip with The Giant Steps Art project, Brown Paper Puppetry tutorials, designing and making puppets and writing.
My latest writing project is an original play called Nappies to Nappies. The play is a timely piece that asks what we truly value in life. It is a raw, poetic, stream of consciousness that follows the personal journey of a retired, single man, who is in despair, being evicted from his home and has nowhere to go. It is confronting, does have a strong language warning and discusses topics concerning his existence in contemporary society.
The long journey has begun with decisions to be made to find a way of either getting it to the stage or to create a film.
Thank you for reading and watch this space...
