25 February - 9 March 2013

Kiki, Bob and Jumper are best friends with extravagant and idiosyncratic dreams. Kiki wants to dance the tango on Mount Kilimanjaro with a bearded lady, Jumper is in love with a snake called Trix and Bob’s an ordinary bloke who might just hold the secret to time travel. A tale about growing up, dying young, and being extraordinary no matter what.

With a diverse bag of influences, including cabaret, slapstick, Tina Turner and David Lynch, Cut Snake is highly physical-featuring minor acrobatics, major humour and sock puppets.

An entertaining, moving and life-affirming theatrical experience that takes the audience on an extraordinary trip outside the auditorium.

CUT SNAKE played sold out seasons at the 2011 Sydney and Melbourne Fringe Festivals, winning a Melbourne Fringe Award for Best Emerging Writers. It was also nominated for Melbourne Green Room Theatre Awards for Best New Australian Work and Best Independent Ensemble.

“Physical theatre, clowning, acrobatics, sock puppetry - it’s all performed with demented energy. Under Paige Rattray’s direction, these hybrid strains unite with admirable precision from a talented young cast.”
REBECCA HARKINS-CROSS

“If ever a live event needed an instant replay function it would be CUT SNAKE, so its 50 minutes of delight could be enjoyed over and over again. It is an absolutely gorgeous production; a wide-eyed, energetic and endearing paean to youthful optimism.”
HERALD SUN

“CUT SNAKE is mad. Hell mad. I loved it. ARTHUR harnesses a highly physical style to a narrative drenched in comic excess. It has a World According to Garp feel, and is up there with the craziest stories about grief ever told... It’s a joyous, poignant, an incredibly funny ride.”
