In our lunch break we popped into PSAS for the brilliant SpaceFolding SoundPlastic exhibition, part of this year’s Totally Huge New Music Festival. Walking through a labyrinth of light and sound you wonder – Are they connected? What do they mean? The exhibition has been evolving over the past weeks, including two performances which involved volunteers and the artist being wrapped in plastic. Read more →

The Night Zoo at Spare Parts

09 Jan 2015
January 9, 2015

We’ve been to Spare Parts quite a few times now and enjoyed every show. Every performance is so unique and so much effort is put into each production. Their latest show runs until the 31st of January so there’s plenty of time to catch the performance.

Dancing with meerkats, penguins or elephants! These were only things Jamie could dream of – that is until The Night Zoo came to visit!

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre’s production of The Night Zoo is the perfect summer holidays entertainment full of music, dancing and laughter. It features a stunning puppet cast of life-size animal characters, including Elephant, Giraffe, Penguin, Cranes, Thorny Devils, and the hilarious dancing Meerkats brought to life by performers Ben Mortley and Sarah Nelson through puppetry, dance, animation, masks – and a light sprinkling of manure!

Be reminded of the joy that animals bring to our lives as Jamie goes on a wild night-time adventure with the inhabitants of The Night Zoo. The summer season runs from January 5 to 31 with two shows daily at 10am and 1pm, Monday to Saturday (no shows Sundays or Public Holidays). There are also two special Friday evening performances n January 16 & 30 at 6.30pm. At 45 minutes and suitable for ages three and above, The Night Zoo is a joyful summer experience for all family to share.
