Salt and Poppet Theatre is a Melbourne based bijou puppetry company, spreading it’s spice across the country. We create seasoned puppet projects combining the construction and performance of puppets, in order to break down boundaries and peel open the envelope of ordinary life.
Our work is daring and different, combining art forms to create new and exciting work both with and for, young and old alike.
Inside the Walls was created during Theresa O'Connor’s Children's Literature Fellowship at the State Library of Victoria. It went on to play at the Melbourne Puppetry Festival at La Mama, at Arts House for the Melbourne Fringe Festival kids hub program and most recently for the National Theatre in St Kilda.
