Up and Away

Up and Away

Up and Away is a playful and gentle theatrical performance created exclusively for babies. Two performers interweave elements of theatre, play and live music in a half-hour performance, which culminates in free play and exploration-time for baby audience members.

Up and Away is performed in a cosy, purpose-made tent.

Audience numbers are limited to a small group, and only pre-walking babies with their care-givers may attend.

This results in a calm, safe atmosphere and optimal conditions for babies to engage in the performance, which is the first of its kind in New Zealand.

Up and Away has been developed in consultation with a speech-language therapist, in accordance with current neuroscientific research.

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

"...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
