Ten Tonne Sparrow is a performance company created by multi-disciplinary artists Tom Hogan, Joe Lui, and Finn O’Branagáin. We work between Perth and Sydney, creating work that uses storytelling, pop-sociology, pop-science, history, and the sheer force of charm and exuberance to talk about the stories we tell about ourselves.

Tamagotchi Reset & Other Doomsdays




"Immense, intense and filled with brilliance, this show is a must-see.  ★ ★ ★ ★ ½" - OutInPerth

"Incredibly informative, laughable and existential, yet scarily… all so relevant. Do not miss this production, it could just save us from a doomsday. ★ ★ ★ ★ ½" - The Theatre Diary

"It was going to be a pretty weird play... Was I right? Eh … sort of. Was it good, though? Abso-fucking-lutely. ★ ★ ★ ★" - Dircksey





Finn’s new Tamagotchi is acting a bit weird. The tentacled hatchling needs constant care and attention, and it just keeps whispering “That is not dead which can eternal lie” over and over again. Scott’s having fever dreams about rising sea levels, and cult members keep turning up at the front door. Is it time? Is THIS climate change? Or was Nostradamus wrong again?

The real signposts of inevitable doom are already here, so Finn and Scott connect the dots between ancient myth, up-to-the-minute science, and the dankest memes. Together they present a comprehensive pre-apocalyptic guide to the end of the world.

From the minds behind The Epic comes a new factual spectacular about the end of humanity, and our relationship with the world around us.

Come on in, the water is warm. And it’s getting warmer.
