Street Talk

Virtuoso Japanese pianist and composer Satoko Fujii talks about her musical journey. "I have never played with a female big band and am very curious to hear how the music comes out . . . . I am so excited to meet them, talk to them, work with them, and make music with them."

A Fusion of Tan’s beautiful and surreal illustrations with exquisite puppetry, Haunting music and fine acting.

Built on the animation of images from Shaun Tan’s new book a fantastical world comes to life in a strange and Wonderful metropolis full of floating ships, alien objects and weird animals. It is in this place that our hero Aki makes his home.

The Arrival is a universal tale of the challenges, the humour and adventures of arriving in a new country and resonates far beyond any arrival….a new school, a new job, a new town. The absence of words not only makes the story perfect for puppetry but emphasizes the isolation that is experienced by many people arriving in a new place. This is Spare Parts Puppet Theatre's most visually stunning and emotional moving production to date and has been received with absolute critical claim.

…..one of the best pieces of children’s theatre staged in Perth for years, a soulful and richly imaginative show of refreshing excellence. The Australian
