About the Show
An Adaptation of Dot and the Kangaroo.
Adapted by John Romeril
When 5-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?
Featuring breathtaking aerial acrobatics, live music and spectacular 3D projections, 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 is so stunningly beautiful and touching “children” of all ages should come away with a smile” – Susan Hetherington, ABC
