A Not So Traditional Story

A NOT SO TRADITIONAL STORY

by Nathan Maynard - TERRAPIN

An epic quest of bravery and friendship.

A story with a little bit of truth and a little bit of make-believe, one might say A Not So Traditional Story…

Once upon a time two kids, Wurangkili (who is keen on adventure) and Timita (who takes a bit of convincing), are crashed upon by an Alien from a faraway land.

Join them as they embark on an epic quest across the island of lutruwita in search of the ‘oldest of old elders’, meeting up with some hilarious and unique friends along the way.

This beautiful and funny production by Terrapin Puppet Theatre uses masks, shadow puppetry and physical theatre to tell an important story of culture, identity, bravery and friendship.

A Not So Traditional Story is a hilarious, rare and memorable performance that combines Terrapin’s renowned skill in entertaining and engaging children with the voice of a new generation of Tasmanian Aboriginal performing artists (Nathan Maynard, The Season).

Co-commissioned by Arts Centre Melbourne and produced in association with the Tasmanian Department of Education and Kickstart Arts.
