Barrydale Parade 16th December 2011 : Handspring Trust

We are also pleased to report that Handspring Trust, in collaboration with Net-Vir-Pret and Magpie Art Collective, had a joyful time in Barrydale on the 16th December.  We set up a temporary workshop in the Belanti Cinema, courtesy of Theo Nel and the Barrydale Karoo Hotel. There was a procession of puppets by the children of Barrydale and giant puppets by Handspring Puppet Company. The children performed a San story about the creation of the Milky Way. A highlight of the evening was the lighting of the Magpie Christmas tree.

The newly formed Handspring Trust is a registered not-for-profit organization seeking to inspire creativity, commitment and innovation in the puppetry arts. The Trust is focussing on developmental work with the communities of rural Barrydale and the urban settlement of Vrygrond near Handspring’s factory in Capricorn Park.

We thank you for your support and wish you a relaxing festive season and a healthy, fulfilling & prosperous 2012.


Adrian, Basil and all at Handspring
