Event Description

Shaun Tan's fantastical world comes to life in a strange and wonderful metropolis

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre​ weaves exceptional acting and amazing puppetry with animation of the exquisite images from the book to bring Shaun Tan's The Arrival to life on stage. Floating ships, mysterious lights, alien symbols and weird animals are all part of the new 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.

Shaun Tan's work has an ability to transcend social cultural and age barriers. The Arrival is a theatre work that will appeal to all and be remebered forever. This is Spare Parts Puppet Theatre's most visually stunning and emotionally moving production to date and has been received with absolute critical acclaim.

Tickets: Adults $22, Seniors/Pensioners $20, Students/Children $20, Family Pass (2 Adults, 2 Children) $72.

You can book your tickets in person at RPAC Box Office, 2–16 Middle Street, Cleveland or by phone on 3829 8131 or online at
