Village Accommodation Group Festival season of
Carnival of the Animals (NZ Premiere)
A production by Circa and QPAC's Out of the Box Festival (Australia)

Zebras juggle and flip, kangaroos skip and somersault, elephants with street-cred stride to a rhythm and dinosaur bones shake, clatter and roll to the music… The Carnival is coming to town!

With whimsical tales from the land and sea, creatures tumble, fly, leap and spin their way through the wondrous worlds of the animal kingdom. Prepare to be whisked away on a thrilling circus escapade inspired by Camille Saint-Saëns delightful salute to feathers, fur and fins as Circa brings this classical music to life for a new generation of circus, music and animal lovers.

Stunning audiences at the 2014 New Zealand Festival, Circa’s creations are stirring tributes to humanity; affirming the potential of our bodies, the depth of our emotions and our infinite capacity for wonder.

“...a spellbinding and mesmerising performance...about wild imagination, explosions of magic and comical humour...a spectacle not to be missed.” - Brisbane kids, Australia
