The Arrival – 2017

How amazing is Shaun Tan’s work for exploring journey as a universal experience? As well as multicultural stories, the migrant experience, marginalisation and imaginative story composition? In a time of mass-migration and refugee crises, experiencing The Arrival live on stage will be a timely and relevant excursion for students.

Spare Parts have crafted a stunning visual text. Innovative and magical this is an unforgettable work with tons of cross-curriculum links.

Monkey Baa provide teachers with detailed resources to accompany the production that link to Stage 4 outcomes in English and Drama. This includes: creative thinking; responding to difference; contrast and contradiction in productions and texts; devising scripted and unscripted material; and more.
