Dirt and Other Delicious Ingredients

Auckland Live and Java Dance Theatre are bringing the outstanding family show, Dirt and Other Delicious Ingredients to the Bruce Mason Centre from 11 – 14 October as part of this year’s Tempo Dance Festival and Auckland Live Kids Play. Children will love going to this playful, squishy dance show in the October school holidays!

Creating a charming piece of dance theatre for three to eight-year-olds, the esteemed Kiwi company Java Dance Theatre have travelled as far as Edinburgh Fringe Festival with their beloved sell-out shows. After successful seasons throughout New Zealand and internationally, Dirt and Other Delicious Ingredients lands in Auckland for the very first time to delight kids with this exciting and incredibly immersive live event.  

A feast for the senses, cinnamon and spices cover the stage, and children will love the climactic tomato fight.  Constructing an imaginative world, the dancers spring from, jump off, roll around, and drum on barrels, using them as clever story-telling elements for physical comedy to help bring the show to life. The stunning choreography is combined with percussive drumming and the delicious notes of coffee and cinnamon, making for a unique dance show.
