When we went to see the terrifying sea monster and all his friends we also watched a really cool performance by a company called Erth. The play was live performance puppetry showcasing characters from an Australian production called Nargun and the stars. What we saw was called I, Bunyip and was more like watching a wild life ranger at an animal display than watching theatre only the animals they brought out to let the kids pat were puppets.
This is what Lani wrote about it:
On Sunday we went to the museum and saw I, Bunyip and we saw Aboriginal Spirit creatures. There were Potkooroks that can make you see in a different way and Nyols look like half bat half owl and Yawk Yawks are fresh water mermaids. I like Potkoorok the best.

Why. When. I, Bunyip

I saw Yawk Yawks and everything was not real. They were puppets. The puppeteers were wearing black clothes because they didn’t want to be seen. I did not like it because it was scary.
