When it comes to friends, Juniper has no idea what all the fuss is about; in fact when classmates tease her for being like a robot she takes it as a compliment. Through the unconventional eyes of a child on the Autism Spectrum, Robot Song takes the audience on an incredible ride of personal discovery.

Robot Song introduces us to Juniper, a smart 11-year-old whose world is turned upside down when the arm of a giant robot appears on her doorstep and takes her on an unexpected journey to find the rest of its body. Surprised by the robot’s revelation that it has only ever wanted to sing, Juniper learns flexibility and unexpected outcomes are sometimes exactly what you need.

Robot Song is drawn from writer/director Jolyon James’ experience raising a child on the Autism Spectrum. In celebrating Junipers unique way of interpreting the world, Robot Song provides a window for all young people to recognise and embrace the differences within themselves and others.
Robot Song embeds cutting edge digital technology within live performance. Arena has piloted use of live animation over the last two years through our workshop program, Robot Song is the culmination of this work.

Performance is 60 minutes long without an interval.
Most suitable for children 8 to 12 years of age.
Also of great interest to families, parents, friends and carers of persons on the Autism Spectrum.
Come together to enjoy the story and the possibilities.
