Up And Away

"...you'd have to be a baby-hating grinch with a lump of coal for a heart not to see that this is a pretty special experience for big and little people alike." Theatreview, New Zealand

Up and Away is a playful and gentle theatrical performance created exclusively for babies and their grown-ups.
Fragments of everyday life are elevated from the ordinary to the exquisite, through the exploration of live music and play. A cosy and safe atmosphere is created by way of a small number of attendees and a requirement that only pre-walking babies may attend. Up and Away takes place in a carefully crafted tent.
Through this created sense of calm, babies are given an optimal environment from which to engage and explore along with their caregiver.
We encourage the audience to come as you are. Every baby will respond differently to the performance, and we embrace and welcome that. This production is informed by current neuroscientific research and has been developed in consultation with a speech and language therapist through a series of rehearsal workshops with babies.

"...a gentle, heart-warming show... The reactions... ranged from awestruck silence to excited shouting." What's Up Christchurch

Important information:
* Only babies (0-18 months) may attend accompanied by a caregiver. Due to the nature of the performance, babies who are walking cannot be admitted.
* We want everyone to feel totally relaxed during the performance, there will be no option to bring older siblings or other children along. We don't want our very youngest audience members to be overwhelmed by children who might be slightly too old for the performance.
* Pram parking will be available in the Bradford Room as well as changing and feeding facilities.
