Loose Ends

Menu

You are here

Makers, creators, and story lovers; dive into a theatrical adventure that feels like the magic box of a bygone trickster! Journey to an eccentric place where gadgets are poetic, puppets naughty, machines untamed and circus tricks pop up when you’re least expecting it! This is a world where music appears from lemons, carrots and bunny’s bums, monsters go crazy and birthday parties are ferociously celebrated.

Loose Ends is the story of a man who thinks he can organise all his life in boxes, and has a knack for getting into mischief. Can this tinkerer learn enough about real friendship to keep him out of trouble? Loose Ends is a family show, combining custom-built contraptions, puppetry, circus, shadow projection, music and transformed objects. It is a story about friendship, loyalty and inventiveness, in a whimsical world of half-mechanised thingamabobs and headstrong puppets.

Built from hard rubbish and op-shop treasures, the set is a celebration of the capricious: household items are transformed and given new uses and contexts, offering a humorous and surprising look at things. This breathtaking show is highly visual, emotional and unpredictable. It makes inventions and machines fun and adds a few quirky edges to puppetry… Ever wondered what Elmo would look like without his fur?

The show has a sneakily educational post-show component, where a few of its tinkering and technological elements are explained and experimented with.

Loose Ends is coming to the Esperance Civic Centre on Monday 14 May at 6pm. Don't miss it!
