My Robot

Monday, 1 July to Sunday, 14 July
Barking Gecko Theatre, 178 William Street, Perth

 

“This is children’s theatre at its best” – Seesaw Magazine

My Robot
by Finegan Kruckemeyer

A show about making new friends – literally!

When Ophelia moves with her family to the seaside, she’s not impressed. She doesn’t like the beach, misses her old home and thinks the people in this town are pretty strange. While unpacking her room she discovers a mysterious box full of gadgets, parts and pieces, and a strange note that reads ‘You. Make. Me.’

Her curiosity gets the better of her and she spends all night assembling the objects into Olivetti, a robot with a typewriter chest and an alarm clock heart. Made up of pieces, but more than the sum of her parts.

My Robot takes audiences of all ages on a rambunctious adventure filled with robot antics, laughter, daring rescues and bewildered parents, all told with the care and artistry synonymous with Barking Gecko’s award-winning shows.

For ages 4+
1 – 5 July (Schools Season)
6 – 14 July (General Public Season)

Playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer
Director & Dramaturg Matt Edgerton
Designer Isla Shaw

Attendees will identify their totem insect and use zen tangle patterns and colours to create it. Their terrarium and totem will act as a reminder of the key messages of the workshop.

This workshop is hosted by The Art Space Collective – Scarborough’s first innovative and inspired community arts hub!
