The Garden of Paradise

Terrapin Puppet Theatre and Tasdance


A young prince goes in search of the garden of paradise and meets and old woman in the forest. Her sons are the four winds: north, south, east, west and each tells a take of the places they’ve seen. This little known tale by Hans Christian Andersen has been adapted to the stage by a team led by Tasmania’s finest artists and involving both Terrapin Puppet Theatre and TasDance, is theatre made through puppetry, music, dance, visual magic and poetry.
