World Premiere | Commissioned by Bleach* Festival
Meet Tabitha. She used to be a train conductor, now she travels through time making sure anything that goes choo choo, beep beep or ding ding is in tiptop condition.
The only problem is her timepiece has stopped and if she doesn’t get it working again the city’s transport will grind to a halt!
Can you help Tabitha solve the clues and get her watch working again before you get to the end of the line? If you can, you will become one of the guardians of transport. What an honour!
All Aboard! is a delightful site-specific performance for families created by Seeing Place Productions about the joy of movement and how to move on when things change in your life. Children (and their carers) will be given a headset and sent on a theatrical adventure hopping on and off the Gold Coast Light Rail.
Seeing Place Productions is the Gold Coast’s newest professional performance company focused on people and place led by Kate Shearer.
