Adelaide Premiere | Aotearoa/New Zealand | Performance
Presented by Trick of the Light Theatre (New Zealand)
It’s 1998. Otto is twelve but online he’s thirteen and he’s pretty sure he gets away with it. He lives in an old wooden house with his mum, dad and sister, a mysterious Icelandic granny and an ancient malevolent troll that’s started living in the wall...
From the award-winning Trick of Light Theatre (makers of The Bookbinder and The Road that Wasn’t There) comes a lo-fi, wi-fi fable in the vein of Stranger Things. Tröll combines storytelling, music and puppetry in an uncanny tale from the twitchy edges of the digital age.
Brilliant, dark, funny, and poignant. Theatreview
Fascinating to watch and never ceases to amaze... A wonderful mix of mythological and modern storytelling. Dominion Post
