Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Wednesday 24th–Thursday 25th October 2012
A multi award-winning, one-man, micro-epic puppet show that melds technology and multimedia into a touching story of enduring love and the end of the world.
The seas have risen, billions have died and those who are left live on farms atop skyscrapers, atop mountains. The scientists have tried everything. Floating islands sank, space probes found nothing, and the giant sponges, visible from the moon, are now rotting icons of failure. Now science and humanity are turning to the oceans themselves. A last ditch effort to save the human race requires journeying down through the mysterious depths of the deep blue sea to find a new place for us to live. Alvin Sputnik, who has just lost his wife, accepts this perilous mission allowing him to follow her soul down to the underworld so that they can be together again once more.
