MORPH Puppet Festival

“Puppet theatres nurture a truly unique artistic language that can never be eclipsed by modern technological entertainments… Perhaps the most fascinating and intriguing thing about puppet theatre is how similar art forms have developed in vastly different countries around the world. It seems to reflect a deeply human instinct to represent ourselves.”

Natasha von Geldern

We are currently nurturing our plans to bring a colourful, entertaining, eye-opening, soul-feeding, spectacular Puppet Festival to Northland in Winter 2022. And it isn’t going to be a one-off, fly-by-night festival. Taking place biennially, MORPH will morph into an exciting tradition, growing and changing with each festival. An event to encourage visitors from the region, the island, the country, and then the world.

With varied and exciting components, from guest speakers to workshops and competitions, plays and films, spread over the course of two weeks, there will be something (actually, lots of things!) for everyone to enjoy.

We’re starting small until we have the funding behind us to go BIG. So, stand by Northland… the very first MORPH Puppet Festival is coming this year!

We’ll be adding information to our website as plans progress.
