The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer is a tiny tale set in the deepest dark blue sea, of a solitary explorer with a heart as big as a whale. Direct from sellout seasons in New York, Sydney, and Auckland this multi award-winning piece of heartwarming theatrical magic is a one-man micro-epic about enduring love and the end of the world. “…akin to a theatrical Wall-E” (New York Times).
In a highly imaginative fusion of animation, puppetry, projections, live and recorded music, master storyteller St John Cowcher tells the tale of Alvin Sputnik, deep sea explorer, and the search for his lost love in the seemingly endless depths of the ocean.
Using a constantly creative, beguiling and quirky blend of live action, puppetry, animation, music and film, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer weaves a story of love, loss and quiet heroism with engaging energy and an enchanting magic. Young and old – both adults and children – will delight in this wonderfully romantic hour of pure abandonment.
We can’t recommend this highly enough… bring your friends, bring your family; they will owe you big time!
