Theatre North presents


from Jens Altheimer

Online ticket sales close at 4:00 pm 19 January.

Door sales are available half an hour before the performance.

Can we save our stories when the robots arrive?

Performed by the imaginative mind of clown, tinkerer, inventor and comedian Jens Altheimer, Whalebone will inspire everyone who loves stories, surprises and wonders as well as the minds of young aspiring inventors.

Set within a place called the ‘Depository’, Whalebone follows a solitary worker as he tries to safeguard human stories, memories and emotions in a data-driven world where AI and machines are going rogue, and making more and more decisions for us.

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

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