Dead Puppet Society

Welcome to 2020

We’re not quite sure how it’s 2020 already, but coinciding with this intensely satisfying date, DPS is entering its second decade, and we’re thrilled to be able to share with you what we have in the works for the coming year.

2020 sees more DPS productions than any previous year. We’re kicking off with the return of two old favourites, Laser Beak Man and The Riddle of Washpool Gully, before turning our sights to the creation of Ishmael, a reimagining of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, premiering in co-production with Brisbane Festival and QPAC before transferring to the Sydney Opera House later in the year.

Once again we’re also offering a suite of core workshops alongside more intensive residency programs, all of which have been updated to fit within the evolving curriculum and are now available across Queensland and New South Wales. All of our engagement activities can be tailored to suit a wide range of study areas, forms, and interests — we’d love to hear what you’re looking for, and work with you to craft a bespoke experience for your students or community.

Behind the scenes, we’re continuing work with our international collaborators and partners as we look to the future, and we’re thrilled to be welcoming Jen Livingstone to the DPS fold who will be working as Creative Producer across a range of new outdoor activation works.

We can’t wait to kick things off, and hope that we get the chance to collaborate with you in the near future.


Nick, David, Helen and Jen.
