Dead Puppet Society




Presented in association with Brisbane Powerhouse

This year the Society is opening its doors to a select group of young people to join our training academy for the year. Open to Senior Secondary and Tertiary Undergraduate students, the ensemble will meet weekly, and under the guidance of our senior artists, take part in training, learn the fundamentals of puppet construction, and ultimately work towards the creation of a brand new project. In addition, participants will have the chance to connect with our other projects for the year through visits to the workshop and rehearsal room as well as backstage tours and forums with our artists.


  • Introductory workshops
  • Theatre visits
