* Relaxed Performance
A Dead Puppet Society, La Boite and Brisbane Festival production in association with PowerArts
Jam packed with the trademark visual puns of artist Tim Sharp, and featuring live music by Sam Cromack of Ball Park Music, the world of Laser Beak Man is brought to life in puppet form by the creative minds of Dead Puppet Society.
Power City is the most beautiful city in the world, clean, pure – perfect; but not by accident. Local hero Laser Beak Man works hard to keep it that way. Drawing energy from the underground Magna Crystals that power the City his beak has the ability to shoot lasers that turn bad to good. That is until Peter Bartman, evil genius, and Laser Beak Man’s estranged childhood friend, steals the Magna Crystals. Robbed of his super powers, Laser Beak Man must find a way to stop his oldest nemesis from destroying Power City.
In a story filled with the trademark humor and visual puns that come from his literal interpretation of language, Laser Beak Man is a new visual theatre work by the Dead Puppet Society and Tim Sharp that explodes with colour and energy.
Brought to spectacular life by seven actors, more than 35 original puppets and form-pushing animation along with drone-like flying objects and live music this is a not to be missed experience for students. Laser Beak Man is part puppet show, part pop concert, all heart.
