Established in 1981, Terrapin is the centre of excellence for contemporary puppetry in Australia, creating puppetry-based performances for all ages.
Telling sophisticated stories of humour and pathos, the company embraces new technologies
whilst remaining true to the wonder and illusion resident in the age-old craft of puppetry.
In its productions, the company aims to inspire families by encouraging them to express the
power of their collective imagination through inventive play with the objects and devices that surround them.
Terrapin injects skills and programs into the Tasmanian community, supporting and developing
artists and touring nationally and internationally.
In 2012, Terrapin’s production Boats won the Helpmann Award for Best Presentation for Children
