Audience & Marketing Notes
Bunk Puppets is targeting a more general family audience with Bunkasaurus. We feel that the speedy pacing of the performance (in the use of comedy, sound and light) will appeal to a more general main stream audience, who do not always self-identify their tastes as alternative or risk-taking. With a very original format of presentation in the puppetry forms, there is also a strong appeal across audiences that self- identify as theatre goers.
- Bunkasaurus is a live performance mashup that aims to blend up the abundance of imagery and narrative forms in the modern world, and to re-focus those diverging forms using simple performance tools and careful stagecraft technique. Bunk Puppets seeks to inspire and awaken audiences : busy audiences seem to be refreshed by a DIY aesthetic.
- Bunk Puppets touring performers are available to provide workshops on puppetry, clowning, performance as well as offer post-show Q & A and audience engagements.
