When The Pictures Came is a collaboration between Terrapin and the Children’s Art Theatre of China in association with the Lakeside Arts Centre, Nottingham UK, and Reckless Moments. It premiered on International Children’s Day 2010 in Shanghai. Olaf Meyer developed a series of original techniques to create digital puppets, inspired by traditional marionettes and black light theatre. Links were forged with local Shanghai Animators through Barry Plews and the Shanghai Animation company.
The show was re-staged twice in Hobart in 2011 as part of the 10 Days on the Island Art Festival in Tasmania and the Big Family Outing Festival, South Australia.
