Dele plays a last game of football with his friends, says goodbye to his son and sets off on a voyage to a smog-filled metropolis across the sea.

Carrying only a small suitcase, he embarks on a journey into the unknown. Others he meets along the way share his dream of building a home in a new city and being joined by their families.

“A moment of kindness in a sea of unfamiliarity… A long, hard day at work… A lively party… A nostalgic lullaby…”

Based on the illustrated novel by Oscar winner Shaun Tan, one man’s tale echoes the many ‘arrivals’ happening around us all the time. This epic story unfolds through an extraordinary weaving together of theatre, circus and music.

Tamasha is an award-winning theatre company, which drives the crossover of culturally specific work into the mainstream. Successes like Snookered, East is East and The Trouble with Asian Men have won acclaim from audiences and critics alike.

“Tamasha means commotion, creating a stir, and the

company is certainly doing that.”
