Join us for a very special in-progress performance of Little Girl Lost. The uplifting new theatrical adventure for young people and their families comes from theatre makers Company of Rogues and Matriark Theatre.
Told with magical puppetry and quirky animation, we follow the story of Rima, a young girl who wakes up to find herself in a dark place. A land of talking animals and shifting wilderness, where the familiar is made unfamiliar (and maybe vice versa). But she doesn’t know who, what, or where she is.
In order to find her way, Rima will charge herself with an epic adventure full of mystery, the bizarre, and the inspiring, aided by an Elephant who knows the way, and a Monkey that just wants to play. Rima will need to find the clues and put them back together before all time, reality, identity and legacy are lost forever. As she tries to find comfort and safety, take her fragile hand in yours, and help uncover truth from Lies, the real from the imagined and how best one can find their way ‘home.
Exploring what it is to remember and be remembered, this in-progress showing will bring to life the play’s central themes, puppetry and visual design.
This work is designed to help families understand the experience of Dementia/Alzheimer’s in an entertaining and poignant format.
In-progress showings are created to help theatre makers test new work with audiences. For this showing we’ll be testing a completed script, animation and puppetry design, and major design elements that are being developed for the final work. It’s a unique opportunity to see a special piece of new theatre before anyone else, so we hope you’ll join us at the show and then for refreshments after.
Supported by an Inner West Council art and culture grant and the City of Sydney.
