Adapted from the award-winning book by Shaun Tan and exclusively at the Dolphin Theatre
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 also emphasises the isolation experienced by many people arriving in a new place.
The Arrival is a fusion of Tan’s beautiful and surreal illustrations with exquisite puppetry, haunting music and fine acting. This groundbreaking 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.
