WINNER: BEST COSTUME, BEST of THEATRE – AUCKLAND FRINGE 2015
In the magical world of flitting butterflies, jumping eggs and giant swaying flowers, two lycra-clad puppeteers try their hardest to remain unseen and at service to their puppets, two enormous plump caterpillars.
Things are just not going to plan. This is the story of their failed attempts at aviation and beautification. Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, with nothing but their wits to cover up their escalating blunders, two appealingly hopeless clown puppeteers bring upbeat absurdity, slapstick silliness, and a good dose of reality to their hilarious and unpredictable antics.
Caterpillars was developed in Finland, premiering in September 2014. Caterpillars made its New Zealand premiere in February 2015 at the Auckland Fringe Festival, going on to feature in the Capital E National Arts Festival for Children in March 2015.
