The Farmer’s Daughter explores the bond between a girl and her grandfather. Audiences will experience a visual celebration of a family’s connection and powerful relationship to their environment.
Two years in the making, this show is the unique collaboration between the Merredin farming community and Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, developed through a series of residencies that immersed the creative team in the daily lives of the Wheatbelt farming community.
The Farmer’s Daughter tackles themes of change and resilience while celebrating the lives of the people who live and work on the land. Puppets, performers, lights, and sound vividly recreate rural Australia and invite a deeper understanding of the families who call it home.
