Jam-packed with a kaleidoscopic cast of characters, this ingenious adaptation is coming theatres around the country. Tim's cult-classic artwork comes to life with full-stage animations and over 35 original puppets by Dead Puppet Society and features an infectious live soundtrack by Ball Park Music’s Sam Cromack.
At 11 years of age Tim created a superhero called Laser Beak Man and became the first person with Autism to have his work developed into an animated TV series and theatre production. Tim shares his sense of humour and unique way of looking at the world through his colourful art. His originals are in high demand from collectors and have been exhibited Australia and globally.
Filled with Tim Sharp’s trademark visual puns, the world of Laser Beak Man is brought to life in puppet form by the creative geniuses of Dead Puppet Society (The Wider Earth, Argus, The Harbinger) in this stunning visual theatre work loaded with cutting edge digital imagery and spectacular free-flying Air-Orbs.
In 2014 Tim and his mother Judy Sharp spoke at TEDx Sydney where they received the only standing ovation of the event. There has since been great enthusiasm and support for the development of the stage show. Laser Beak Man premiered at the Brisbane Festival 2017 to rave reviews and received 4 Helpmann award nominations.
