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.

This is the kind of show your kids will love. It is full of junk, fantastical objects, artificial intelligence, drama, thrills and puzzle solving ★★★★Samsara Dunston
