Arielle Gray, Chris Isaacs and Tim Watts, the team behind the international multi-award winning production The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer, have created another heartfelt adventure. Using puppetry, mask, animation and live performance, they deliver a grand epic western about redemption and dementia.
An old man wanders into the wild. As the sun sets, he is swept up in a surreal western, on the run from a mysterious tracker hell-bent on hunting him down. Presented by Perth Theatre Company.
It’s Dark Outside is “a rare triumph of theatrical ingenuity and human compassion” (The West Australian).
Using a constantly creative, beguiling and touching blend of live performance, puppetry and animation, featuring an original music score by award winning composer Rachael Dease, the performers tell the story of memory loss ‘with poetic insight and lightness of touch that makes it moving and uplifting to watch’ (The Australian).
Arts Margaret River is delighted to be able to present this beautiful and captivating production, “a show that seems destined to travel far” (The Australian).
