Floating on a Sea of Stories - Leichhardt Library
Based on traditional children’s stories from Japan, the performance tells the story of Oshin, a poor peasant, who, in a day of very ‘good luck’, acquires a sailing boat and saves a bird. Together they embark on a journey over the Sea of Japan, meeting a host of marvellous characters: sailors, fishermen, boat makers, sail weavers, and even monsters, who all share tales of magic, bravery, kindness, ingenuity, determination, family, friendship and joy.
