Mr Bunk: Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones

Mr Bunk: Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones

Discover Mr. Bunk's giddy world of Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones - a wordless, shadow puppet comedy show for all ages.

Direct from Montreal, Mr. Bunk presents a series of intricate comic sketches using his shadow puppets in a bent take on Warner Brother wackiness. Using elaborate contraptions to generate surreal cartoon shadows, the show will fascinate and delight kids and adults alike.

See flying ninjas, UFO abductions and brain transplants and witness the making of the shadow puppet melodramas as you are invited to discover the visual trickery of each scene.

"He takes the viewer into a childlike world of simple beauty and quirky tales...the audience was mesmerized to the very end...his visual storytelling is a treat and his imagination is can't help but be captivated." - Adelaide Advertiser
