Presented by Capitol Theatre Tamworth
Can we save our stories when the robots arrive?
Created, Performed and Directed by Jens Altheimer
If you’re looking for an engaging, slightly quirky family show, Whalebone is for you!
Set within a place called the 'Depository', Whalebone follows a solitary worker as he tries to safeguard human stories, memories and emotions in a data-driven world where AI and machines are going rogue, and making more and more decisions for us.
Featuring dazzling video and computer animations, ﬂying objects and a pinch of circus, this richly visual theatrical experience takes kids and adults alike on a roller-coaster ride ﬁlled with eccentric contraptions, strange machinery and clunky inventions, including the world's ﬁrst half-human juggling machine!
“This is the kind of show your kids will love. It is full of junk, fantastical objects, artificial intelligence, drama, thrills and puzzle solving.” – Samsara Dunston ★ ★ ★ ★
Whalebone will inspire the minds of young aspiring inventors, as well as everyone who loves stories, surprises and wonders, and leave audiences pondering what role technology plays in our lives and just what it is that makes us humans, human.
Performed by the imaginative mind of clown, tinkerer, inventor and comedian Jens Altheimer. Stay for the Q&A after the show with the opportunity to check out all the contraptions!
Recommended ages: 6-12 & their families.
Warning: Includes fast-paced video effects and twitchy sounds.
