Australia’s Arena Theatre Company presents Robot Song, a heartwarming production inspired by the true story of a parent navigating life with a child on the Autism spectrum.

Robot Song follows the adventures of 11-year-old Juniper May, inviting audiences to see things from Juniper’s perspective as she explores ways to make sense of the world around her. Infused with humour, joy and optimism, this captivating family show blends live animation, video, music and delightful animatronics to immerse the audience in Juniper’s journey of self-discovery.

Robot Song delves into universal themes that resonate with audiences of all ages. Through laughter, tender moments and a special bond with a giant singing robot, Juniper learns that being different is her superpower.
