PUPPETS AT THE PUMPHOUSE 2019

LIVE PUPPET THEATRE

Last month TORO PIKOPIKO PUPPETS performed` our  premiere season of MAMA LONG-FIN -  an hour-long puppet musical for children. This interactive eco-puppet show premiered at the Pumphouse Theatre in Takapuna, Auckland -  featuring fifteen original songs and 120 fold-out Flatsie puppets.  Prior to the show’s opening it was workshopped with children from Takapuna Primary School, who were also at the premiere.  He mihi nui ki a rātou.

Thanks also to Mags Delaney and James Bell from the Pumphouse for their manaakitaka and  the Takapuna/Devenport Community Board for their funding support.

Since then Whaitaima and I have adapted MAMA LONG-FIN into a forty-five minute show for pre-schoolers and have already had performances at pre-schools, kohanga reo and kindergartens in Putaruru, Tokoroa, Taupo and Turangi. In both formats the show is up and running well,  giving us confidence for our remaining 2019 December shows in Hamilton, Huntly and Auckland.

We have already received funding from 8 creative communities schemes to tour sponsored MAMA LONG-FIN shows in  2020 and are now organising our touring schedule around these regional CCS supported tours.
