Event Description:

Winner of best solo show at the New York International Fringe Festival (as well as numerous awards all over the world), The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer is an enchanting puppet spectacle that tells a touching and uplifting story about love, loss, and heroism in a post-apocalyptic world.

Created by Tim Watts and produced by Perth Theatre Company and Weeping Spoon Productions of Australia, this endearing show employs a charming and highly imaginative blend of storytelling,  puppetry, music, animation and humor to present an exploration of the next and oldest frontier: the deep blue sea.

The seas have risen, billions have died, and those who are left live on farms atop skyscrapers. A last ditch effort to save the human race requires journeying down through the mysterious depths of the sea to find a new place for us to live. These are the dire circumstances which surround the central hero of this tale, Alvin Sputnik. Having just lost his wife, Alvin accepts this perilous mission so that he may follow her soul down to the underworld, where they can be together once more.

While this show was created for adult audiences, it is appropriate for older children.
