Like a child’s picture book brought to life in a concert. An isolated volcanic island emerges from the ocean. A seed floats in from distant shores, finding purchase on the rock. A beetle, clinging to driftwood, washes ashore. Time and currents bring more and more new arrivals, by accident and design, to create a rich and varied home.
Famous for producing emotionally challenging and engaging storytelling in rich live theatrical realms, Slingsby’s latest production is no exception. In this world premiere, a magical story is brought to life through original songs, and mesmerising projected imagery, that explore universal themes of strength and diversity.
If more theatre were like this, the world would be a magical place indeed. Australian Stage Online
