Monster Trucks

Monster Trucks


30 January 2022


103 Melville Street, Hobart


Terrapin Puppet Theatre

Monsters are coming.

Cement mixers and plant machinery take on a life of their own. Terrapin worked with four Tasmanian artists to create a fleet of Monster Trucks for MONA FOMA 2022: a leering, grinning series of monsters which roamed Launceston and Hobart.

Inspired by Stephen King’s horror short story Trucks – a tale about sentient machinery enslaving humankind – Monster Trucks takes ordinary machinery and gives it independent life and personality. There’s also more than a hint of 1980s-style collectible sticker culture – unsuspecting citizens must keep their eyes peeled for Monster Trucks as they go about their concrete-pouring business.
