Nan and Tuna have been friends for 80 years and now they both have one last important journey to make. But before they leave they need to find someone to care for their river.

Marionettes, shadows and water puppets combine to tell the fascinating life story of NZ’s endangered longfin eel (tuna) and the difficulties they face on their long journey back to their birth place.

The show is followed by puppet-making each day except on Thursday 1st December.

45 min show and 45mins puppet making.

Creation supported by Philipp Family Foundation and Porirua Creative Communities and Porirua Harbour Trust.
