Creature: A re-telling of Dot and the Kangaroo

Creature invites you to enter the magical world of the Australian bush in this interactive digital re-telling of Dot and the Kangaroo

A Stalker Theatre and Out of the Box production
First commissioned by QPAC for the 2016 Out of the Box Festival for Children 8 years and under

A retelling of the 1899 Australian classic Dot and the Kangaroo written by Ethel C Pedley, Creature is a new indoor theatre work for children that will combine physical theatre, interactive digital technology and storytelling in both show and interactive play-space.

Creature invites you to enter the magical world of the Australian bush to explore how our actions affect the animals.

Five-year-old Dot is lost in the bush and is rescued by a kangaroo. The kangaroo  gives Dot magical “berries of understanding” and she can immediately comprehend the language of all the animals and insects around her. It is a revelation to her. It forever changes the way she views the Australian bush.  Dot and the Kangaroo then set out on an action packed four day journey to return Dot to her homestead.

Meet our indigenous flora and fauna see a myriad of creatures in their natural habitat and explore their quirky characteristics amidst the beauty and fragility of the Australian bush. But how long before this unique native wildlife disappears as we humans encroach on their habitat and push them off the land?

Ages 4-8
