Falling in the school holidays this year, Arts Festival Dunedin’s programme provides a swag of family entertainment.
Celebrations of The Royal New Zealand Navy’s 75th anniversary feature at the Festival with a free children’s pantomime – Commander Claire and the Pirates of Provence, and The Complete History of the RNZ Navy Abridged - a light hearted naval romp through the decades. Java Dance will delight young audiences with Dirt and Other Delicious Ingredients, and Hip-Hop enthusiasts will have the chance to see some of the country’s top Hip- Hop exponents in Out of the Box. Then there’s Caterpillars, a magical show with a swaying sea of bright giant flowers, jumping eggs and two enormous plump caterpillars. Charming and clever it’s a standout for adults and children alike.
