Emil and the Detectives | Slingsby (AUS)

How do we find our friends in the world? How do we work together to defeat tricksters? Find out in this delightfully intimate performance.

Emil and the Detectives is told by two skilled actors and is made complete with smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score.

Recommended for ages 8+ years

There will be performances with Auslan translation at 3pm and 5pm on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 April.

"For 10 years, Slingsby, under the meticulous direction of its founder Andy Packer, has been making captivating theatre for young audiences. Packer specialises incoming-of-age or getting-of-wisdom stories and Emil and the Detectives is no exception. Watching these detectives is a theatrical delight." Murray Bramwell, The Australian.

About the creators:
Adelaide-based company Slingsby has enchanted audiences across 10 countries, including a sold-out season in New York.
