On Our Radar: Dinosaur Zoo Live Is Coming!

What would it have been like to live amongst the dinosaurs? What did they eat? Where did they roam? How did they survive amongst other creatures? Dinosaurs have always captivated the interest of kids and adults alike. It’s hard to believe they roamed the same planet centuries ago.

A rare opportunity to experience these giant creatures is coming in a unique experimental theatre production. ERTH’s Dinosaur Zoo Live features a cast of large-scale dinosaur puppets brought to life by theatrics and puppet mastery. The aim? To connect kids and families with dinosaurs in a fun and interactive setting. Sixteen dinosaurs will roam the stage including the awesome Triceratops created uniquely for the North American tour. Children will be able to watch and learn, but can also interact with the creatures in this fun and educational presentation.

Dinosaur Zoo Live is created by one of Australia’s most innovative and creative companies, ERTH Visual & Physical, Inc.. For over 21 years, the company has developed an extraordinary box of tricks in its unique visual and physical theatre work. Their work ranges form large-scale interactive environments such as “The Garden”, a prehistoric landscape inhabited by giant insects which premièred at the Melbourne International Festival of Arts to more intimate in-theatre work.  The company tours internationally and more than a million people have seen its dinosaurs in museums and performances.

Dinosaur Zoo Live will be at the Panasonic Theatre (651 Yonge Street, Toronto) July 8 to 20, 2014, for 20 performances only.

Tickets prices $25-$35 each (VIP packages $55 each) and available at www.mirvish.com
