Akio! (UNCUT) - Bondi Festival arrow-leftarrow-rightmagnifying-glassshare-iconshopping-cart-iconstar-iconuser-icon

Dust off your Buster sword – its time to get nostalgic.

When Akio! needs to escape from the world, he turns to his video games. His safe place. Until things go horribly wrong. Akio! and long time crush, Harumi, are sucked into the video game world, and to escape he must face his biggest fears head on.

Join Akio! down the rabbit hole as we shamelessly rip off Tron, Zelda, Street Fighter, Mario and more of your favourite 90’s video games, through art, dance, multimedia, laughter and a good dose of the warm fuzzies.

“The best thing about the show is its embrace of movement, dance, and multimedia storytelling; this is a show that will speak to a restless child (or adult) who is used to looking at messages and listening to voices simultaneously, who plays games and lives through apps and has no idea how someone can fly through the air – but can feel magic when they do” Aussie Theatre

Presented by Bare With Me Theatre Co. in association with Blue Theatre Co.
