New Lynn School
Art form: Multi-Disciplinary / Theatre
Project name: Kōwhai and the Giants
Project information: The whole school will work with an artist to bring the picture book ‘Kowhai and the Giants’ to life as a theatre show. Due to be released in March 2021 'Kōwhai and the Giants' is a story of our New Zealand ecological history. It's pictures are paper cutouts using light to silhouette their form. This style will guide the works design. Students will be empowered with a range of theatrical skills including physical theatre, puppetry, devising and story telling. Students will also work in part to design and build the set and imagery elements.
Project starting: May 2021
