The Arrival and the ASRC

We are very proud to announce that our production of Shaun Tan's The Arrival in the 2010 Melbourne Fringe Festival has raised $3,286.55 for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Melbourne.

The ASRC is an incredible organisation that is the leading provider of aid, healthcare and advocacy to asylum seekers in Australia.

These funds are enough to fund the ASRC's Community Meals Program for over three months!

The Arrival had a hugely successful season, receiving both the People's Choice Award and the TheatreWorks Award at the Melbourne Fringe Awards Ceremony. It was described by The Australian and Theatre Notes critic Alison Croggon as "an ambitious piece of physical theatre that is often completely enchanting".

Thank you to everyone who worked on and supported The Arrival, and to everyone who came to see the show and supported the cause.
