Kōtuku and the Moon Child
- Created by Bridget and Roger Sanders

- Ghost Light Theatre
Music by David Sanders
Puppet and Set by Briget Sanders
Video by Peter Blasdale
Produced by Birdlife Productions
Masks and Puppetry and breath-taking original music by Wellington composer David Sanders - a hero’s journey with a difference and a story told with absolutely no spoken word. This newly updated show (originally called Heron’s Feather and performed in Nelson in January 2018) has been greatly developed in advance of a European tour next year, with a deeper more dynamic storyline, beautiful costumes and additional characters.
Created by Nelson’s own professional theatre company Birdlife Productions, Kōtuku and the Moon Child is a thoroughly enchanting for everyone aged from 5 to 95 years! This is an absolutely brilliant production with wonderful storytelling .
Maori believe that seeing just one White Heron/kōtuku in your life will bring you good fortune – but what if your sister got captured by a bad one and it was your fault so you went after her and got captured as well? How could this possibly be seen as ‘good fortune’ – unless of course your adventure turns out better than expected and some really cool stuff happens on the way.
