When the Mirror Bird Sings
Wildly imaginative visual theatre for 3 – 11 year olds.
A tale about a rare flock of wonderous birds whose precious mirror ball eggs give rise to a heartfelt struggle between the forces of kindness and greed.
The story, dance and drama is intricately choreographed to the superb musical score of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons recomposed by Max Richter, thus creating such a rich multi-layered immersive and high quality performing arts experience.
The show provokes emotive connections to themes relating to environmental sustainability, greed, kindness, conflict resolution and reconciliation. Through the interpretation and response of such themes within the show children benefit through enhanced understanding of themselves and others.

Suitable: R – 5 (Included workshop for lower primary class. Preferably Class 1)
