Having captivated audiences around the world, It’s Dark Outside celebrates its ten-year anniversary back where it all started. As the sun sets, an old man goes wandering into the night. He is swept up in a surreal western, on the run from a mysterious tracker hell-bent on hunting him down. A heartfelt exploration of dementia told through puppetry, mask, animation and live performance; this award-winning adventure tells the tale of an old man chasing his memories as they escape into the wild. Arielle Gray, Chris Isaacs and Tim Watts bring a constantly creative, beguiling and touching blend of live performance, puppetry and animation.
Featuring an original music score by award-winning composer Rachael Dease, the performers tell the story of memory loss “with poetic insight and lightness of touch that makes it moving and uplifting to watch” – The Australian.
Itʼs Dark Outside is “a rare triumph of theatrical ingenuity and human compassion” – The West Australian
