Theatre, education and design.
A creative partnership
For almost a decade we’ve worked closely with Terrapin Puppet Theatre, collaborating on many of their productions and tours. So making the commitment to become their design partner was an easy decision.
Founded in 1981 and regarded as Australia’s premier puppet theatre, Terrapin has continually maintained a reputation for quality performances, strong design, and a sense of community. Terrapin’s initial focus was on establishing a Tasmanian schools touring circuit.
Today, more than 30 years later, that local commitment continues with theatre productions traveling right throughout the state. Additionally, the success over the years has seen interest in their productions extend, and Terrapin Puppet Theatre now regularly tours nationally and internationally. Terrapin’s productions are unique, a visual delight that is both entertaining and educational.
From Red Racing Hood on her adventures with granny, dad and the wolf, to a Big Baby who saves the world, there is energy and excitement in every show for the audience and the performers. As design partners, we work closely with Terrapin to develop a creative concept for each production and tour.
Through gaining an insight into the story and theme, as well as an understanding of the intended audience, we are able to create a visual identity that complements each production.
Once this is established, we set about delivering a suite of promotional material, including brochures, programs, posters and banners.
Terrapin Puppet Theatre is an organisation with a unique offering and a dedication to their community. We’re fortunate to work as their design partners, and support their productions as they tour locally, nationally and around the world.
“Futago has a deep understanding of our industry and work flexibly with us to achieve the desired outcome.”
