Robot Song at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival

  • Tue Mar 26 - Sat Apr 13 2019
  • Adult $35, Concession $25

Robot Song introduces us to Juniper, a smart 11-year-old whose world is turned upside down when the arm of a giant robot appears on her doorstep and takes her on an unexpected journey to find the rest of its body. Surprised by the robot’s revelation that it has only ever wanted to sing, Juniper learns flexibility and unexpected outcomes are sometimes exactly what you need.

Robot Song is drawn from writer director Jolyon James' experience raising a child on the Autism Spectrum. In celebrating Juniper’s unique way of interpreting the world Robot Song provides a window for all young people to recognise and embrace the differences within themselves and others. 

Using live animation, animatronics and with original music Robot Song will be an incredible new work as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
