You and Me and the Space Between [ Screening of invited foreign films with after-talk ]
【Part play, part picture book and all wondrous fun, a magical story of an adventurous girl unfolds as an illustrator draws the pictures live in front of our eyes!】The island is sinking. Its adults are useless. Time for the kids to save the day.
The island of Proud Circle springs a leak and its citizens must find a way to stop their home from disappearing. It takes the wondering mind of a child to save the island, its people and their ways. Adventures happen, horizons widen and important things are said.
From the mind of Australia’s most accomplished children’s playwright, Finegan Kruckemeyer, comes a tale of wonder and invention that is brought to life in unexpected ways. Storytelling, choreographed projections and live drawn animation explore the plight of refugees fleeing environmental change through the eyes of a child.
Step inside a picture book with an artist and storyteller, amidst a paper set that is cut, ripped, patched and manipulated live to create a world of play.
A video recording of the work will be shown at the venue. After the screening, there will be an after-talk session with the performers, director, and other company personnel overseas via a live broadcast.
