A whimsical puppetry theatre show will perform at the Art Centre Melbourne's intimate Fairfax Studio this October 27 & 28; the "Book of Lost Stories" and you & your children are invited along to enjoy the beautiful tale.
Based on Reinhardt Jung’s internationally lauded novel, the Book of Lost Stories by the Barking Gecko Theatre Company’s is the story of an impossibly small man with an enormous love for writing.
Tucked away in his quiet attic, his only companions are the characters he has created in his stories.
One day, Bambert decides to set his stories free, to send them out into the world on little balloons, in the hope that they will find a home. The stories contain instructions: whoever finds them is to return them to Bambert with a stamp from wherever they landed, so he knows where his stories have gone. But as each day passes, and no stories return, Bambert’s hope begins to fade. Will his stories ever find a home?
Before and after the show, your children are given the opportunity to colour in and add their wishes to balloons, just like Bambert.
The wishes are then placed in a magic box that animates their picture and projects in onto a screen for the world to see.
