The Arts Centre Gold Coast and Erth Visual & Physical INC. present Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo
Erth’s widely acclaimed show, Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo™, takes audiences into a new dimension of theatre.
Meet awesome prehistoric creatures, from cute baby dinos to some of the largest carnivores and herbivores that have ever walked the planet! Erth’s dinosaurs are unmistakably ‘alive’ and mostly friendly in this fun, educational and unique performance that will delight all audiences from ages 5 years and up.
“BOLDLY GOING INTO TERRITORY FEW THEATRE COMPANIES WOULD DARE VENTURE NEAR…”. – DAVID SEFTON, ADELAIDE FESTIVAL DIRECTOR
Get up close and personal with an amazing array of creatures from bygone eras, connecting young audiences to the real science of palaeontology. Meet our most recent zoo addition, a carnivorous theropod known as the Australovenator, discovered in QLD and is the most complete meat-eating skeleton yet found in Australia. Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo™ includes a menagerie of insects and dinosaurs that once roamed free around the world and are now in daily residence.
Learn how to feed and interact with Erth’s dinosaurs in a once in a lifetime interactive experience. Children can watch wide-eyed from a safe distance or dare to get right up close to these prehistoric creatures.
Experience the thrill of this extraordinarily imaginative work.
Erth have continually created live theatre at the forefront of new performance practice. Since its beginnings in 1990, the Company has strived to provide audiences with eye popping visual experiences.
Giant puppetry, stilt-walkers, inflatable environments, aerial and flying creatures. Erth is all these things and more.
Erth have built an Australia wide, and increasingly international reputation based on exceptional work. In demand for events and festivals, the Company inspires audiences with their unique and dynamic vision.
