The Red Tree

October 2013

Blink’s premiere performance; a dance theatre adaptation of the award winning book by Australian artist Shaun Tan featured lush movement, stunning visual media and giant puppetry. The Red Tree led audiences into a sublime physical landscape, giving flight and form to a quiet journey of epic proportions.

This project also supported an 8 week series of community art workshops, culminating in a public exhibition in the foyer.

The performance was awarded MOST REFRESHING NEWCOMER by Entertainment Geelong. The company also received nominations for BEST PRODUCTION, BEST DIRECTOR (Lyndel Quick) and MOST INNOVATIVE FEATURE (Melinda Chapman for media design)

The Red Tree was proudly supported by The City of Greater Geelong
