18 Sep 2018 - 20 Sep 2018

Whether you’re looking to experience a unique theatre piece up-close as part of Drama/ Performance Studies, or just looking for an engaging end-of-term excursion, then take a trip to the SlapDash Galaxy.

Shadow puppets in space! This is the tale of Sam and Junior: two brothers, who must flee their barren planet, and embark on an epic quest across the galaxy. Using the contents of your cleaning cupboard, Bunk Puppets’ David Geddes conjures up astonishing lo-fi theatrical wizardry using only old boxes, bubble wrap, drinking straws, tennis balls, ping pong bats and old toys. It’s a crazy shadow puppet universe, made from bits of rubbish.

Award-winning Bunk Puppets, creators of ‘Swamp Juice’ and ‘Sticks Stones Broken Bones’, present this new, delicious, DIY theatre event.

Forget what you think you know about shadow puppets, buckle-in and tear open your imagination for an epic journey with two brothers as they battle the bad guys, and find strength in each other at warp speed.
