Ben Walsh brings Shaun Tan’s much-loved book The Arrival to life.
The inventive graphic stories by internationally renowned illustrator Shaun Tan have already migrated from page to screen, with the Oscar-winning film The Lost Thing. In Tan’s much-loved book The Arrival we follow the melancholic yet hopeful adventures of a refugee in a strange world. Sydney composer Ben Walsh brings this story to life in a live sonic-scape, performed by a 10-piece band ‘Orkestra of The Underground’, with projections of Tan’s exquisite illustrations.
