The Package is an uplifting, soulful journey of magical realism. It addresses the socially-hidden subjects of old-age and death with beauty, humour and great heart. Combining puppetry, physical theatre, animation and mask, it rides an enchanting original score, delivering a rich, wordless experience. The show premieres with live musical accompaniment for Adelaide Fringe 2017.
Revealing a woman's inner journey as she faces death, this poignant, surreal work pitches institutionalisation against memory and the human spirit. Somewhere between a well-loved picture book and a dream, The Package reaches across ages, cultures and language-barriers, straight to the heart.
