Sky Dancer in the Capital E National Arts Festival
We’re grownups at the Wellingtonista, well, unless there’s a fart joke to be made, so when there’s a National Arts Festival for Children, we thought it would be good to get some children involved, so here are three reviews of Sky Dancer.
Henry, age 11:
“Sky Dancer was not like anything I have seen before. It was surprising how the orchestra could tell a story through sounds. The drums were amazing, just like thunder. The puppets and movies helped us understand what was happening. We saw the writer there. Now I want to read the whole story! (Ed: Sky Dancer by Witi Ihimaera)“
“The birds were awesome! Puppets and people!”
“I went to the Sky Dancer show. The show was about two teams of birds that were fighting each other. Then a girl came and brought peace.The lighting was exceptional and the puppet work was done well too. I thought the show was quite loud but the music did tell the story well.”
