Masks and Puppetry and breath-taking original music by Wellington composer David Sanders - a hero’s journey with a difference and a story told with absolutely no spoken word. This newly updated show (originally called ‘Heron’s Feather’ and performed in Nelson in January 2018) has been greatly developed in advance of a European tour next year, with a deeper more dynamic storyline, beautiful costumes and additional characters.

Created by Nelson’s own professional theatre company Birdlife Productions, ‘kōtuku and the Moon Child’ will be thoroughly enchanting for everyone aged 5 years to 95 years! “This is an absolutely brilliant production. The wonderful storytelling abilities of Roger and Bridget [Birdlife Productions] will take you on a journey of exquisite artistry and simplicity that will leave you wanting more. True story telling at its finest.” Joel Bolton QSO, Conductor.

Maori believe that seeing just one White Heron/kōtuku in your life will bring you good fortune – but what if your sister got captured by a bad one and it was your fault so you went after her and got captured as well? How could this possibly be seen as ‘good fortune’ – unless of course your adventure turns out better than expected and some really cool stuff happens on the way.
