Charming Picture Books Spring To Life. 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Fish' by Eric Carle. Windmill Performing Arts [review]
Bramwell, Murray Ross
Windmill Director Cate Fowler describes Twinkle Twinkle Little Fish as a production which was determined to be born. Commissioned for the 1998 Out of the Box Festival in Brisbane, it nearly stayed in its box when ACT based Company Skylark crashed after an embezzlement scandal. Fowler found rescue funds and the creative team - director Simon Phillips, puppeteer Peter Wilson and composer Ian McDonald saw the project through. Everybody’s having fun here and Cate Fowler’s commitment to Twinkle Twinkle Little Fish has paid off. Like that Hungry Caterpillar it has been in its cocoon for a while and now is ready to spread its very confident wings.
