Whalebone

19 - 20 Apr

A tale full of magic.

Welcome to the ‘Depository’, a mysterious bureau that has seen better days. The last, rather whimsical worker continues an important task: with the help of some strange machinery, he extracts the stories that live in old, discarded objects and safeguards their memories in a magical place. But the arrival of an obsolete A.I. that is programmed to avoid being disconnected starts a gripping and humorous clash between the analogue and the digital.

Featuring dazzling video and computer animations, flying objects and a pinch of circus, this richly visual theatrical experience takes kids and adults on a roller-coaster ride.

Performed by the imaginative tinkerer and comedian, Jens Altheimer (winner of the Adelaide Fringe Award for ‘Best Production for Children’), physical reality turns virtual and back, in this quirky family show about what makes us human.

Reviews

  • This is the kind of show your kids will love. It is full of junk, fantastical objects, artificial intelligence, drama, thrills and puzzle solving. - What Did She Think?
