‘Loose Ends’ at Art Gallery


Loose Ends: Theatre for Families will be staged at the Ipswich Art Gallery 18 September to 01 October 2017.

Experience extraordinary visual theatre, set in a wondrous tinkering heaven! Take a journey to an eccentric place where gadgets are poetic, puppets are naughty, machines untamed and circus tricks pop-up when you least expect!

Developed and performed by Paris-trained, multi-disciplinary circus artist and quirkologist Jens Altheimer, Loose Ends features contraptions, tricks and quirky characters. Familiar household items are transformed and given surprising new uses, offering a humorous and human look at the world that surrounds us.

Rich in visual variety, audiences will be stunned by the contraptions coming to life before their very eyes.

Loose Ends is about friendship, acceptance and loyalty; plenty of entertainment with a dose of emotion in a story about a man who thinks he can organise all his life in boxes… well, he’ll have to learn a big thing about real friendships.

This breathtaking show is highly visual, emotional and unpredictable. It makes inventions and machines fun and adds quirky edges to puppetry. Cost is $7 per person (FREE for under 2s not occupying a seat) Bookings essential! Book & pay onlineipswichartgallery.qld.gov.au. Recommended for 5 years +
