Event description

Description

String Symphony, presented by Place Activation at Curtin and produced by Spare Parts Puppet Theatre. Created by designer and puppet maker Leon Hendroff!

Come down to Curtin University's Bentley campus at 12pm from Tuesday 1st August to Sunday 6th August and be amazed by our resident 5 metre high Giant Marionette performing the spectacular ‘String Symphony’!

FREE for staff, students and the wider community, ‘String Symphony’ explores concepts of connection, community and teamwork through a marionette brought to life by Curtin’s talented Theatre Studies students. The marionette is suspended from a five-metre high truss and controlled by ropes on each side by up to 12 people!

For those who can’t wait Curtin’s Theatre Studies students will be rehearsing with the puppet all day in the University's Henderson Court on the 24th and 25th July if you want to take an early sneak peek! After Tuesday’s show at 12.30pm there will be an Artist Talk with String Symphony creator Leon Hendroff who is a graduate from Curtin University’s School of Design, Graphic Design & Illustration.

Don’t miss the marionette illuminated at night during the Theatre Studies show ‘12 Strings and the Scale of Things' from Tuesday 1st August – Saturday 5th August at 7.00pm. Tickets for this show are $15-
