A biting and magical satire set deep beneath the sea!

The Age of Bones traces the story of Ikan, an Indonesian boy who goes fishing one day and fails to return. Fearing the worst, his family hires a famed seafarer to track him down - he finds nothing.

Combining Indonesian puppetry, music and digital projection, The Age of Bones follows Ikan’s fantastical story from Indonesia to his eventual imprisonment ‘down under’ and his fight to get home to his family.

A heartfelt and darkly funny tale inspired by the real-life stories of 60 Indonesian boys allegedly imprisoned in Australia for working on refugee boats.

We will be hosting post-show panel talks at each tour venue.
