Bunk Puppets proudly presents a premiere season, as a part of the 2020 Melbourne International Comedy Festival


Created and performed by Jeff Achtem and Tim Sneddon

The Coopers Malthouse Theatre

Two men, hundreds of boxes, limitless fun

A jaunty new adventure from the DIY masters of puppetry and theatrical wizardry, Bunkasaurus delights our youngest arts lovers with a captivating hour of slapdash puppets, comical characters, and mesmerising illusions. Harnessing Bunk Puppets' trademark approach to clowning and shadow puppet storytelling using everyday objects, Bunkasaurus puts the 'Ay!' in play.

When two workers are looking for a distraction from their boring job, they soon discover that the boxes and everyday objects surrounding them are the antidote. As they take turns trying to outdo one another, the adventure becomes more and more wonderfully outrageous. Until the boss turns up

Running for a limited season during the March/April School Holidays, Bunkasaurus is the perfect opportunity for children (and big kids alike) to join the fun of Australia's most iconic Comedy Festival.

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Bunk Puppets are a multi award-winning company creating cutting edge shadow puppet theatre. Running since 2010, they have traversed the globe and built an outstanding international reputation with their absurdist visual stories.
