Gold Coast Events // October 6 to October 13, 2017
Thursday October 12 thru to Saturday October 14 // The Arts Centre Gold Coast, 135 Bundall Rd, Surfers Paradise
Follow Aki as he starts life amidst the extraordinary inhabitants of this new land. Will he find a place to live? Will he find a job and make friends? Most of all, will Aki ever see his family again? The absence of words not only makes this story perfect for puppetry but emphasises the isolation experienced by many people arriving in a new place. The Arrival is a fusion of Tanâ€™s beautiful and surreal illustrations with exquisite puppetry, haunting music and fine acting. This ground breaking production blurs the boundaries of performance, digital animation and puppetry. This is an emotionally moving piece which will touch anyone who has bid farewell to a loved one. Suitable for all ages, perfect for 5+ years.
