Erth’s Murder

This new adult puppetry show, Murder by Erth, is now playing at the Sydney Festival until 19 January. It looks really interesting, and while Erth has made some amazing productions over the last few years to do with Australian natural history, it’s exciting to see them branching out into something contemporary, dark and different. Rod Primrose fromĀ Black Hole (whose Coop was one of the highlights of Unima 2008 for me) is the puppetry director.

There’s a review in The Australian today. And an earlier backgrounder with a gallery of making photos.
