The Arrival

Built on the animation of images from Shaun Tan’s new book, a fantastical world comes to life in a strange and wonderful metropolis full of floating ships, alien objects and weird animals. It is in this place that our hero Aki makes his home.

The Arrival is a fusion of Tan’s beautiful, surreal illustrations with exquisite puppetry, haunting music and fine acting.

The challenges, humour and adventures of arriving in a new country resonate with any arrival….a new school, a new job, a new town. The absence of words not only makes the story perfect for puppetry but emphasizes the isolation that is experienced by many people arriving in a new place. This is Spare Parts Puppet Theatre’s most visually stunning and emotionally moving production to date and has been received with absolute critical claim.

‘…..one of the best pieces of children’s theatre… a soulful and richly imaginative show of refreshing excellence.’ The Australian
