For their final show before they graduate, all of the students’ creative inventiveness will be let loose to bring Spare Parts’ history, building, surrounding parkland, and favourite puppets to magical life! Under the direction of Michael Barlow, SPPT’s Associate Director, the students will create a promenade performance as the centrepiece of celebrations of 40 years of contemporary puppetry, made in wonder.
