Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Hatched is a gothic fairytale where the stories are told with fantastical giant books, old world hand made marionettes, voice and sign language. Characters include a girl who reads dreams, a mother who sews garments lined with warmth and joy, a three legged baby boy, and a grandfather who heals with magical concoctions. The Grimstones were created by Asphyxia, who was a deaf circus performer, introduced to puppeteering, and has proceeded to create each marionette, and all of the sets by hand. The show is described as celebrating the wonder of books, the acceptance of difference, the love of family and the simple pleasures of life, in the style of Tim Burton's productions. The perfect way to entertain yourself on a spooky Friday the 13th!
