The New York Times describes it as, “…an endearing Australian solo show told in stick-figure animation and puppetry… akin to a theatrical Wall-E.”
The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer is a tiny tale about a solitary explorer with a heart as big as a whale. The seas have risen, the lives of billions have been lost and those who have survived live on farms atop skyscrapers or mountains. While scientists are constantly researching alternate new places to call home, science and humanity turn to the oceans for help. This monumental goal of saving the human race requires journeying down through the mysterious depths of the deep blue sea and Alvin Sputnik is the one to accept this perilous mission. Created and performed by Watts, he employs unique methods of mime, puppetry, music and animation to present this story of exploration and hope.
