Sun 31 Dec 12pm - 4pm (Roving)

We all know compost heaps have a life of their own, but not like this one! Inspired by Tasmanians’ love of gardening, Terrapin takes the inner life of compost to great heights – literally – with Heap, a new roving performance featuring an ambitious amateur horticulturalist and a giant, unwieldy compost creature. Designed by master puppet maker Bryony Anderson in collaboration with Moonah Primary School and constructed entirely out of salvaged materials, Heap will engage green (and black) thumbs of all ages.

Thanks to the City of Hobart’s Community Day, you’ll find Heap popping up at Taste, from the lawns to the waterfront.
