Info

When the arm of a giant robot appears on Juniper’s doorstep, her eleven-year-old world is turned upside down.

Embarking on an unexpected journey to find the rest of its body, Juniper discovers bringing the robot to life is the easy part. Now she must achieve the impossible….teach it how to feel.

Incorporating live animation, video and performance, Robot Song follows the journey of a young girl on the autism spectrum learning to understand her unique way of relating to the world. Through the help of a giant robot and a deep love of singing, Juniper discovers that life doesn't always turn out the way you plan; sometimes it's much, much better.


Perfect for children ages 8-12

Reviews

“At times laugh-out-loud hilarious, Robot Song is also a poignant, compelling story, that covers topics young people would do well to be exposed to, without straying into being patronising or syrupy. Gorgeously told and superbly crafted, one minute I was laughing at poo jokes and the next I had tears in my eyes. A must-see for young people growing up in a world where bullying is widespread but who need to understand that difference should be seen as an asset.” – Fiona Parker, ABC
