Red Leap Theatre is an Auckland based theatre company under the Artistic leadership of Kate Parker and Julie Nolan. The company is recognized for its unique blend of striking visual imagery, ensemble physicality and stories with heart. Adapted from the award winning graphic novel by Shaun Tan, “The Arrival” is a universal migrant tale set in a fantastical time and place. A man flees his homeland and journeys across vast seas to arrive in a strange, wondrous new world where giant ships fly through the air and curious creatures abound. It is a story of overcoming hardship, of humanity and of hope. A story for young and old, where language is no barrier.
