Kokako's Song (Nelson, New Zealand)
1 Feb 2018 - 30 Apr 2020
With beautifully handcrafted life-sized puppetry and original live music and singing, ‘Kokako’s Song’ is a little show with a big heart! 6 year old Angel is a shy and withdrawn child who secretly longs to be a Superhero-Rapper. After getting lost in the enchanting realm of the forest and having a delightful encounter with a real live Kokako, becoming a Superhero-Rapper does not look so far out of reach after-all. Perhaps this strange bird with the haunting song and black face-mask might actually be a Superhero herself?
Nominated for ‘Best Theatre’ at Dunedin Fringe 2017, and 'Best Visiting Show' at Dunedin Theatre Awards 2017, 'Kokako's Song' is the latest offering from Nelson’s own theatre company, Birdlife Productions.
