Tamasha & Circus Space
09 - 13 Apr 2013
Dele plays a last game of football with his friends, says goodbye to his son and sets off on a voyage to a smog-filled metropolis across the sea. Carrying only a small suitcase he embarks on a journey into the unknown.
A moment of kindness in a sea of unfamiliarity… A hard day at work…
A lively party… A nostalgic lullaby…
Based on the illustrated novel by Oscar winner Shaun Tan, one man’s tale echoes the many ‘arrivals’ happening around us all the time. This epic story unfolds through an extraordinary blend of theatre, circus and music.
"A 50-minute gem that fuses movement, music, poetry, circus skills and projected animations seamlessly to bring the experience of strangers arriving in strange lands to life." The Stage
