Event Description

The Art House Presents Whalebone

Featuring dazzling video and computer animations, flying objects and a pinch of circus, this richly visual theatrical experience takes kids and adults alike on a roller-coaster ride.

Whalebone is filled with eccentric contraptions, strange machinery, and clunky inventions, including the world’s first half-human juggling machine!

Nestled in the mysterious ‘Depository’, meet a lone worker with a mission. In a world where AI and machines are going rogue and making more and more decisions for us, he tries to safeguard human stories, memories, and emotions. Laugh out loud, gasp in awe, and let your imagination soar. 

Whalebone will ignite the curiosity of young aspiring inventors, as well as everyone who loves stories and wonders. It invites audiences to ponder the role of technology in our lives, sparking conversations about what really defines us as humans.

Duration: 55 minutes no interval plus post show Q&A
Recommended ages: 6-12 and families
Warnings: Includes fast-paced video effects and twitchy sounds
For accessible/wheelchair bookings please call the Box Office

This is the kind of show your kids will love. It is full of junk, fantastical objects, artificial intelligence, drama, thrills, and puzzle solving. – – Samsara Dunston ★ ★ ★ ★

WHALEBONE’ is a real imagination buzz from start to finish. This is a perfect show for everyone, no matter what age, to be introduced to wonder and imagination through theatre – Janice Haynes, Forge Theatre and Arts Hub Manager
