Alice and her family live by the sea.
Every day her family goes down to the jetty for a swim.
Mum and dad dive and make huge belly flops as her brother does bombies off the top rail! But Alice, who is not afraid of snakes or spiders, just watches from the rail. Alice is scared of the deep.
Even with all the encouragement in the world, Alice is scared to swim where the ocean turns from green to blue.
But an unsuspecting swim with the local dolphins changes all of that ...
Based on the book by Tim Winton and brought to you by Australia's champions of puppetry, Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, The Deep is all about forgetting to be scared!
Of Mice and Men is a novel written by Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck. Published in 1937, it tells the tragic story of George and his big childlike friend Lennie, two displaced migrant ranch workers, who move from place to place in search of new job opportunities during the Great Depression.
They have nothing except the clothes on their back, and a hope that one day they’ll find a place to call home.
Tim Podesta and Andy Howitt created a duet inspired by this classic tale of friendship and trust after meeting in mid 2013.
Their aim was to create work that was accessible, artistically bold and theatrical and that responded to the text of a great novel. In this partnership they have found a shared passion for creativity via dance.
