A moment of kindness in a sea of unfamiliarity… A long, hard day at work… A lively party… A nostalgic lullaby…
Carrying only a small suitcase, Dele plays a last game of football with his friends, says goodbye to his son and embarks on a journey to an unknown smog-filled metropolis across the sea.
Based on the illustrated novel by Oscar winner Shaun Tan, one man’s tale echoes the many ‘arrivals’ happening around us all the time. This epic migration story unfolds through an extraordinary weaving together of theatre, circus and music.
