Terrapin Puppet Theatre

Case Study: You and Me and the Space Between



Terrapin Puppet Theatre pitched the concept of the show, You and Me and the Space Between, as part of the APAM 2016 Official Program.

Since presenting at APAM, the work has had several seasons across Australia and is moving to international presentation in 2017.

“Pitching at APAM enabled Terrapin to showcase its work to a vast array of national and international presenters.  It reaffirmed the quality of our work to those who knew us, and introduced our work to a number of significant presenters with whom we can now develop new and rewarding partnerships.”

About You and Me and the Space Between

(APAM 2016 Pitch)

The island of The Proud Circle has sprung a leak and its citizens must find a solution to stop their home disappearing forever.

It's going to take all the ingenuity of their youngsters to ensure they don’t lose their way of living in the process.

This funny and heroic story from one of Australia’s finest playwrights for children, Finegan Kruckemeyer, is brought to life through narration, music and live drawings that emerge in large scale on a paper set that has a life of its own.

Part picture book, part play and all wonder, this new work will have you and your family engaged at every moment.
