WEST COAST PREMIERE! This multimedia performance art piece tells the story of famed Japanese animator Osamu Tezuka and Astro Boy, his most famous character. This West Coast Premiere features interactive video, live drawing and stylized movement. It’s a whimsical, retro sci-fi visual extravaganza that examines post-WWII fascination with technology and destruction, and the relationship between creation and creator.

"The words ‘You’ve never seen anything like this before’ may sound cliché, but trust me, you have never seen anything like Astro Boy And The God Of Comics, a mind-boggling blend of fact and fantasy that weaves together human performers and live action with still-&-animated video projections, puppets, and most exciting of all, live cartooning by some skilled actors/pen-&-ink artists—all of which adds up to what is CERTAIN TO BE ONE OF THE SUMMER'S MOST GIGANTIC HITS."
