Birdlife Productions presents: Kokako’s Song

A Southland Arts Festival presentation

With beautifully handcrafted life-sized puppetry and live music, Kokako’s Song is a little show with a big heart, suitable for ages 2-8.

Searching for her dog, six-year old Angel finds herself lost in the forest where she has a delightful encounter with a real live kokako (or is that really her Granddad dressed up in disguise?). Perhaps this strange bird with the haunting song and black facemask might actually be a Superhero.

Kokako’s Song reminds us all that the creatures of the bush, many of them endangered, are special and should be treasured.
