In 2008 we produced “The Keeper”, with Canberra artist Chrissie Shaw, funded by Arts ACT. “The Keeper” had successful seasons at Canberra’s Street Theatre, La Mama, Melbourne, and is currently touring regional Victoria (RAV Funding) and NSW.

In June ‘08 we created two children’s shows commissioned by the Immigration Museum: “Chinese Shadow Tales” for the focus on China (January) and “Bunraku Baby” for Japan Day (July).

Also in ‘08, Barking Spider was also instrumental in assisting indigenous artist Jacob Boheme obtain funds from Arts Victoria and City of Melbourne for his large-scale community project “Stories from the Birrarung”.
