From the creators of the international multi-award winning production The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer comes the heartfelt adventure of an old man wandering into the wild.
As the sun sets he is swept up in a surreal western, on the run from a mysterious tracker hell bent on hunting him down.
As the world around him crumbles he is lost in the fantasy of his wayward mind.
This exploration of dementia is told through puppetry, mask, animation, live performance with a haunting score from Rachael Dease.
Created and performed by Tim Watts, Arielle Gray and Chris Isaacs.

‘Arielle Gray’s immersion within the character of the old man is flawless; her physical transformation, aided by a malleable mask complete with skin folds and creases, is complete. Her embodiment of the old man is filled with vulnerability along with a cheeky and determined attitude to triumph over the mysterious hunter.’ – Realtime Arts
