Multi-award winning theatre maker (The Beast and The World Holds Everyone Apart, Apart From Us) returns with his prototype invention, a lo-fi, DIY, off-beat, sci-fi, storytelling experience. Surreal, soulful comedy about a decomposing world and a cosmic visitor. Bowden comes to Melbourne following a 5-star season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Following the international success of 'The Beast' - nominated for Best Independent Theatre Writing and Best Independent Theatre Performer (Melbourne Green Room Awards 2013) and 'The World Holds Everyone Apart, Apart From Us' - nominated for the Arches Brick Award (Edinburgh Fringe 2011) and Best Theatre, Best Performer and the Underbelly Edinburgh Award (Adelaide Fringe 2011).
