About this event

Step into the magical world of the ‘Depository’, a mysterious agency that safeguards human memories.

As a rogue AI threatens to erase our treasured stories, a solitary worker races against time. Can his quirky contraptions and eccentric machines shield our stories?

Jens Altheimer masterfully blends humour, imagination, and heart in Whalebone, a show bursting with dazzling visuals, playful inventions and a pinch of circus.

Perfect for kids and adults, this is not just a show—it’s a journey into a fantastical realm where tech meets tale, sparking wonder, curiosity and a good think about what AI means for our lives.

Celebrate the magic of stories, laugh about comic clashes between man and machine and rediscover what truly makes us human.

Creator/Director/Performer Jens Altheimer
