It has been a great honour and privilege to be a part of the “De Ja Voodoo” sideshow family for a week at Woodford Folk Festival.
Run by headline performers Zoe Ellis (Zoe L’Amore of Electric Dollhouse) and Chayne Hultgren (The Space Cowboy), Larrikin Puppets shared the stage in the ‘Deja Voodoo’ sideshow dome every day with Ruben de Waal (Dr. Rube’s Flea Circus) and Shep Huntly (Dr. Hubble’s Big Bubble Show) at the children’s events.
Elissa and I performed three puppet shows a day, every day at the festival.
This has been a truly amazing and memorable experience. Woodford Folk Festival is one of Australia’s biggest festivals, and I feel very blessed to have been invited to be a part of it.
Happy New Year!

Total duration: 45 minutes.
