Kokako's Song (Nelson, New Zealand)
1 Feb 2018 - 30 Apr 2020
With beautifully handcrafted life-sized puppetry and original live music, ‘Kokako’s Song’ is a little show with a big heart! Searching for her dog on the outskirts of the city, 6 year old Angel finds herself lost in the enchanting realm of the forest where she has a delightful encounter with a real live Kokako (or is that really her Granddad dressed up in disguise?).
Or perhaps this strange bird with the haunting song and black facemask might actually be a Superhero?
Nominated for ‘Best Theatre’ at Dunedin Fringe, this is the latest offering from Nelson’s own theatre company, Birdlife Productions.
“Delicious really. The children love it all!”
