Where did all the fish in the sea come from?
Songs of the Sea provides some answers for young children in a great imaginaery water world.
Using a kaleidoscope of puppetry, song and theatre illusion it unfolds the mysteries and myths of where the first fish came from.
From the Sun and Moon (ra and marama), the Milky Way, from the Great Shaper of the Universe come a myriad of marine creatures.
Children can also put faces to fish names as they meet sunfish (ratahuihui) and moonfish, starfish (patangaroa) and seahorse (manaia). Then watch as all fish in the sea swim up the great rainbow to take on their scales of many colours.
Songs of the Sea is a beautiful compilation of New Zealand stories that holds a mirror up to a young child's world and opens the door to a new one!
