Lemony S Puppet Theatre
Lemony S Puppet Theatre is a small, award-winning independent theatre company with a big reputation. With puppet theatre at the core of our work, Lemony S Puppet Theatre use puppetry to disarm the audience and go deep to the core of what it is to be human – to attach meaning to symbols and signs, to empathise and access the innate human ability to “suspend one’s disbelief”. We have a commitment to extending the form of puppetry beyond what is expected and constantly re-invent our practice, developing new styles and performance techniques. Based in Melbourne, our works have been seen throughout Australia and across the world.
Story-telling is essential to being human. It is how we learn, make sense of our world and imagine a better one. At Lemony S Puppet Theatre, we make work for both adult audience and children alike, exploring theatre like metaphysicians, using puppetry to interrogate questions about the nature of objects in the world around us and relish in puppetry’s ability to examine metaphor three dimensionally.
Our works have been supported by funds through The Australia Council for the Arts, Creative Victoria, the Australian Cultural Fund and the Department for Community Services as well as commissions by Arts Centre Melbourne and Theatreworks.
Lemony S Puppet Theatre were recipients of the Myer Foundation Capacity Building grants.
