The classic Australian story Dot and the Kangaroo jumps into the digital age in a stunning new stage adaptation coming soon to Geelong.
Featuring breathtaking aerial acrobatics, live music and spectacular 3D projections, audiences will discover the Australian landscape in a whole new light in Creature - An Adaptation of Dot and the Kangaroo.
See indigenous flora and fauna, meet creatures in their natural habitat and explore their quirky characteristics amidst the beauty and fragility of the Australian bush.
When five-year-old Dot gets lost in the bush, she is rescued by a kangaroo who gives her magic ‘berries of understanding’ that allow her to follow the languages of all the animals and insects around her. With this new gift, Dot and Kangaroo set out on an action-packed adventure to return her home – an adventure that changes the way she sees the Australian bush and her place within it forever.
But how long before this unique native wildlife disappears as humans encroach on their habitat? Creature invites you to enter the magical world of the Australian bush to explore how our actions and choices affect the world around us.
This modern re-telling is based on the 1899 children’s book by Ethel C Pedley, a best-seller across many generations and made into an award-winning film in 1977.
