The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer (2012)
Produced with The Perth Theatre Company
This exquisitely wonderful one-man show is a unique and charming performance that’s emotional, uplifting, touching, and funny – a heartwarming and beautiful experience that’s a remarkable pocket masterpiece of invention, staging and performance.
On a future Earth whose ice caps have melted, rooftops barely provide escape from the rising waters. Our lonely hero Alvin, heartbroken after the loss of his beloved wife, hears a TV plea from Earth HQ seeking a daring soul willing to find a lost oasis at the bottom of the sea that might just save humanity.
Using a constantly creative, beguiling and quirky blend of live action, puppetry, animation, music and film, Australian genius Tim Watts tells his story of love, loss and quiet heroism with engaging energy and an enchanting magic.
Young and old – both adults and children – will delight in this wonderfully romantic hour of pure abandonment. We can’t recommend this highly enough… bring your friends, bring your family; they will owe you big time!
One of the most beautifully constructed and endearing productions I have ever seen
If Pixar had a theatrical division… they’d create something like this show
