SURCAS Presents: Neil Gaiman’s Coraline (2015)


The Wallace theatre for the last 20 years has been repurposed into a lecture hall. For a few nights this October, SURCAS will bring the theatre back to life with a circus adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline. Experience the story retold through acts that will astound and delight, through performances that showcase the variety of skills of our performers.

The story begins with Coraline, whose family moves into an old run down house in the middle of nowhere. The house is dreary, the neighbours are weird and her parents are boring. Coraline yearns for a place more exciting than this. She finds such a world through a portal in the old house, which brings her to a parallel place. A place where the flowers dance, glow and bloom, the neighbours are interesting and the parents are always fun.

Everything is so good… it just can’t be real.

Directed by Michael Hendriksen & Brianna Tuohy
With an all original score by Martin Schultz-Moller

Where: Coraline will be performed in the Wallace theatre at the University of Sydney Camperdown campus. Click here for a map
