Blue Theatre Company is very excited to announce that Akio! an original work written by Matthew De Haas and directed by Jade Alex, will be performing at Hayes Theatre Co (Sydney). This is the Hayes FIRST children's show!

Blue Theatre Company is looking for a talented AV designer to join the team.

About the show:

Akio! is a physical theatre piece, which combines the crafts of acting, dance, choreography, movement, sound and audio-visual design, to tell a universal coming of age tale. Inspired by Japanese theatre maker Tadashi Suzuki and his philosophies of theatre performance and culture, Akio! is a marriage of cultures into one uplifting story of love, bravery, courage and discipline. Theatrically, it explores the beauty of the human body, as it weaves Japanese mythology and gaming culture into an adventure to be enjoyed by all ages.
Akio! is a celebration of childhood, of growth, love and learning to understand and accept your enemy in the face of violence.

AV references:
All AV is centred around gaming with references to Mortal Kombat, Zelda and more. Looking for someone to create an '8-bit' world, for when Akio! is sucked into his gameboy.
