Australia’s flagship puppetry company, Spare Parts Puppet Theatre brings to life acclaimed illustrator/author Shaun Tan's award-winning book, The Arrival.

A truly warm and magical experience, The Arrival is a universal tale of the challenges, humour and adventures of arriving in a new country (or a new school, a new job, a new town). Inspired by stories told by migrants from many different countries, including Shaun Tan’s father who came to Australia from Malaysia in 1960, The Arrival follows Aki, a man who finds himself in a foreign country where he must find a place to live, food to eat and some kind of employment.

Spare Parts weaves exceptional acting and the exquisite puppetry to bring Tan’s fantastical world to life. Audiences will experience a strange and wonderful metropolis full of floating ships, mysterious lights, alien symbols and weird animals.
