AUSTRALIA NOW FESTIVAL 2016
The time has come for Brazil to experience the vitality and diversity of Australian culture from the 60,000 year-old traditions of Indigenous Australia to the cutting edge technologies of today. Through music, circus, visual arts, dance, theatre, multi-media, fashion, gastronomy, community engagement, cinema, sport and photography, Australia now will give Brazilian audiences a taste of an Australia they had never imagined!

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.
