Imagine a time when fish began a gradual move to dry land.
Gogo Fish: The Fossil That Changed the World recreates the world of the Placoderms – water-borne, armour-plated evolutionary ancestors of humans that lived in the Kimberley 375 million years ago.
The play takes you there with a time-travelling fish club. When you arrive in our prehistoric past, something amazing is happening to the Kimberley swamp fish. They are developing the bone structures of arms and legs. But … will the Placoderms realise that to be a fish out of water is progress?
Gogo Fish is a Western Australian story with international significance, a comedy based on scientific fact.
