Australian immersive theatre company Erth marks its Fringe debut with a widely acclaimed show, Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo, taking the young curious minds into a new dimension of performance art.
Known for its unique immersive theatre style and artistry which can put Hollywood’s CGI to shame, Erth’s dinosaur puppets walk, roar and blink at the young audiences as they are unmistakably ‘alive’ and keen to play!
From cute baby dinosaurs to some of the largest carnivores and herbivores that have ever walked the planet, Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo gets up close and personal with an amazing array of creatures from bygone eras, connecting young audiences to the real science of palaeontology. Children can watch wide-eyed from a safe distance or dare to get right up close to these prehistoric creatures. Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo is the definition of edutainment!
Since its beginnings in 1990, Sydney-based Erth has strived to provide audiences with eye-popping visual experiences showcasing giant puppetry, stilt-walkers, inflatable environments, aerial and flying creatures. With a well-established reputation worldwide, the Company has presented its exceptional work at various events and festivals, including Sydney Olympic Games Opening Ceremony and Shanghai World Expo with a presence at Sydney’s Opera House and Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. coming up just ahead of its Fringe debut in Edinburgh this August.
The Company’s previous productions include, among others, I, Bunyip, a multi-artform retelling of stories passed down in indigenous Australian communities for hundreds of years, developed in consultation with five different Aboriginal communities and Murder, inspired by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Murder Ballads, a meditation on the violence staining our world, delving into our culture’s obsession with murder.
