Inspired by images of a real-life abandoned island off the coast of Japan, Battleship Island is a new interactive theatre piece created for children and their families which draws on the fragility and beauty of the world we all live in.
Taking young audiences on a thrilling and thought-provoking journey using soundscapes, visual imagery and live performance installation, Battleship Island tells Hitomi’s story – a story of community, courage and friendship. Audiences are invited to venture into the unknown, becoming immersed in the islands’ fantasy, meeting its inhabitants and hearing their stories.
