Puppet muster

Dave (who is not a puppet) from the puppetry troupe Gypsy Rollers is getting serious about his preparations for Kyogles Puppet Rodeo on Saturday, October 28, when puppets from all over the land will converge on that town for a bit of country life.

The Puppet Rodeo is coming to Kyogle Colosseum on Saturday, October 28, to celebrate the launch of the Kyogle Visitor Information Centre and Kyogle Councils DVD Kyogle Country.

This is a free event where you bring a picnic lunch and a blanket.

The day kicks off at 11am with the screening of Kyogle Country.

Then the Puppet Rodeo performances start with some of our regions best puppetry groups Gypsy Rollers with A Tale of Two Islands, Krinkl Theatre will perform the Grass is Greener and run a puppet workshop, Lenka Muchova will entertain us with The Dragonflys Puppets, and theres Jimmy Willings Von Tramp Family Puppets.

And theres heaps of country rock entertainment with A Couple of Invisible Men (1pm), The Re-Mains (4pm) and Jimmy Willing & the Real Gone Hick-Ups (with Circus the Singin Dog doing a tune or two) at 5pm.

Sounds like a fun day of puppetry and music 11am-6pm. Wear a hat.

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
