The Umbrella & Anarchist Puppet / Poet SLAM!
*The Umbrella - a love story / puppet show.

*Bučan Bučan - balkan marching band / live music.

*Anarchist Puppet / Poetry SLAM - The Little Yellow Guy (a.k.a. Tim Gosley) vs. Missie Peters with celebrity judges, Karen Prell (Fraggle Rock / Labyrinth) Judith Lawrence (Casey & Finneggan / Mr. Dressup) and YOU

...and beer.
Based on a book written and illustrated by Judd Palmer (which was shortlisted for the Governor-General's Award for Children's Literature), THE UMBRELLA is a love story about a man and his umbrella; but one storm-struck day a certain sinister crow threatens their happiness together. The set is a theatrical-storm contraption, complete with thunder sheet, wind machine, and rainspout; the puppet stage is a huge bucket. Through a storm both metaphorical and actual, our heroes emerge scarred  but love prevails.

The show is a small-scale piece created and performed by Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Judd Palmer, and music composed by Julia Wakal.

It's a co-production between Puente Theatre the Old Trout Puppet Workshop, with music by Bučan Bučan, Victoria's beloved Balkan marching band.

MISSIE PETERS is a performance poet who turns poetry into theatre. She has been honing her craft since 2005, and is a two-time Victoria SLAM Champion, a past member of Tongues of Fire and a member of the improvised spoken word duo SpeakEasy.
