Dead Puppet Society


Following their migratory route down river, three ancient giants have become lost in a city. Where they expected to find their seasonal feeding grounds there is now only a jungle made of concrete. As they try to make their way in the altered landscape, these three visitors from a forgotten time provoke a reflection on how the landscape of our country has changed and the effect that humans have had on the creatures that share our island.

Designed and created by the artists at Queensland’s internationally acclaimed visual theatre company Dead Puppet Society, Megafauna takes up residence in a prehistoric installation when not wandering through public space.
