Soonchild by Russell Hoban

Set Design and Construction for Waverly Theatre NTU

Director: Amanda Wilde

In collaboration with Red Earth Theatre, we created a show based on the book Soonchild  by Russell Hoban was created. This piece was an immersive promenade experience for children, striving to make the performance accessible to all, including Deaf and disabled audiences through captions and shadow puppetry. The story follows Sixteen-Face John, a shaman who has abandoned his spiritual duties. John's wife is pregnant with Soonchild, who refuses to come out as she can't hear the World Songs. So, John sets out on a journey to find them.
