Tales From Outer Suburbia (WA, Australia)


3 Apr - 28 Oct 2022

Short Synopsis

Shaun Tan's Tales from Outer Suburbia is a curiously fun celebration of the magic that happens in the most familiar places.

Be taken on a journey of discovery through your own backyard where you might just see a peanut-size, pantry-dwelling creature, a massive wise buffalo on a vacant block and a row-boat floating magically thorough the streets.

With a lively and imaginative mix of real-time animation, projection, miniature marionettes, gigantic rod puppets and playful performers that will capture hearts, minds and imaginations across generations.
