Overview

Robot Song presented by Arena Theatre Company and Bendigo Venues and Events. 

When the arm of giant robot appears on Juniper’s doorstep, her eleven-year-old world is turned upside down. Embarking on an unexpected journey to find the rest of its body, Juniper discovers bringing the robot to life is the easy part. Now she must achieve the impossible….teach it how to feel.

Incorporating live animation, video and performance, Robot Song follows the journey of a young girl learning to understand her unique way of relating to the world. Through the help of a giant robot and a deep love of singing, Juniper discovers that life doesn't always turn out the way you plan, sometimes it's much, much better.
