Dreamer in the Deep- Dream Puppets
In this production ‘Dreamer’ dons a wet suit and flippers and descends into the depths of the ocean. There, a leafy sea dragon (a creature found only in the waters around south east Australia) asks for help to find its mate who has been kidnapped by a greedy scorpion fish. With a sea horse as a guide and travelling companion, Dreamer travels to the seaweed forests in the temperate seas, to the bottom of the ocean in a submarine and to the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. They meet many beautiful, exotic and dangerous sea creatures along the way and make a narrow escape from a curious and hungry anglerfish. Dreamer shows resilience and imagination in meeting each new challenge.
In Dreamer in the Deep we observe sea life in all its diversity and wonder. All Dream puppet theatre productions are comedies and are non threatening. The plays have been performed very successfully to all age from three years and up.
