Anh's Story
Puppetry performance and Workshop
by Keila Terencio

Anh's Story is inspired by the story of a Vietnamese refugee who left home in the early 80s. As a puppetry act simple effects, such as manipulation of objects, shadow and music, will create magical moments.

The workshop will cover basic puppetry making techniques, and will also have an experienced Auslan interpreter on site.
