SYNOPSIS

The Gingham family are very concerned for all the lost and discarded hand-made toys in the world and travel the world to find them. They bring them to their colourful home of odd shaped boxes and welcome them to the family. Each toy is introduced one-by-one, and after seeing a short film of how they came to be lost, they are given a vocal sound, a movement, a piece of music, a night-light......and a nice comfy bed.

FLUFF is a simple, joyful and humorous tale told with a twist. It has been acclaimed for its originality, warmth, clever use of comedy and extraordinary combination of song, movement, new technology and audience participation.

REVIEW HIGHLIGHTS

Fluff

"they're astonishing physical comedians" New York Times

“One of the most imaginative shows for the young you will find. Highly sophisticated and great fun... the children - and the adults - loved it!” The Advertiser (Sydney Opera House season)

“FLUFF, for me was the absolute highlight of the festival. Christine Johnston created and performed, with her creative team, an absolutely brilliant piece of work. Juxtaposing new technology with handmade toys, this performance was inspired, funny, dark, theatrically clever and sophisticated. ......I strongly recommend you should see it if you get the chance.” Lowdown

“Toy story is simply enchanting.... The pacing is deft and Johnston’s vocal feats a marvel. By the end the children’s participation is guaranteed, and they stream from the theatre with radiant faces.” Sydney Morning Herald
