The Centre for Humanities Research at the University of the Western Cape (CHR), in partnership with Net vir Pret are celebrating 10 years of puppetry in Barrydale. Reboot Eden will be an online program of four new puppet performances that will be available online from the 16th -19th December 2020.
Featuring some of the most loved giant puppets created over the 10 years by the Handspring Trust for Puppetry Arts, CHR Artists in Residence, Ukwanda Puppet Company and Net vir Pret, a program of new puppetry performances will be streamed online on the CHR Facebook page. The 16th December will also be the launch of the long awaited musical album Celebration: 10 years of the Barrydale Puppet Parade, in memory of parade musical co-director Gari Crawford who sadly passed away on 14th November this year.
