Birdlife Productions

Kōtuku and the Moon Child

Basal masks, puppetry and breath-taking original piano music tell a story of a little Moon Child who has to learn to adapt to the strange world of planet Earth. An epic adventure of loss, longing and unlikely friendships.

Birdlife Productions have created a story that has grown from their love of myths and fairy tales and shaped and inspired by the light, colours and bird life of their New Zealand home.

Using reams of cloth, found objects and plenty of wonder, this heart-warming adventure crosses boundaries of language and culture, where stories and ideas are communicated non-verbally, but instead through visual imagery and the power of music.

A 5* show for everyone aged 5 to 95 years!

WINNER – The GREEN LIGHT LIST New Zealand Fringe Festival, March 2019

“This is an absolutely brilliant production. The wonderful storytelling abilities of Roger and Bridget [Birdlife Productions] will take you on a journey of exquisite artistry and simplicity that will leave you wanting more. True story telling at its finest.” Joel Bolton QSO, Conductor.

“I have never seen a group of children sit so still and so quietly for so long. Their parents behaved really well too. We have all been entranced” Katie Hindle, Theatreview
