The Arrival at Alchemy Festival
20 – 22 April, Southbank Centre
Get a special sneak preview of The Arrival - a theatre circus show based on Oscar winner Shaun Tan's graphic novel which tells the story of a man who leaves everything behind; family, home, language, work and status. This age-old tale of migration is explored through the poetics of image, multi-lingual narrative, music, choreography and circus arts. During the Alchemy Festival, this excerpt of the show will be rehearsed in situ.
