During the 2008 New Zealand International Arts Festival, Capital E National Theatre for Children is proud to premiere the stage adaptation of Kiwi Moon, based on Gavin Bishop’s exquisite picture book of the same name.

Adapted and directed by National Theatre for Children’s Artistic Director Peter Wilson, Kiwi Moon combines a mix of magical puppets, stunning shadow puppets and catchy songs to tell the tale of a little Kiwi’s journey of self discovery. This deceptively simple story speaks of diversity and the effect that being different has on our community relationships.

Gavin Bishop is an award-winning children's book author and illustrator having been nominated and won several NZ Post Children’s Book Awards. Gavin was awarded the 'Sylvia-Ashton Warner fellow' at the Auckland College of Education for 2004. This is the second collaboration for Gavin and Capital E National Theatre for Children, the first the award winning Hinepau which is set to return to New Zealand audiences later in 2008.
