Java Dance Theatre and Auckland Live bring you a playful, squishy dance show that starts in the dirt and ends in the sky. 

Dirt and other Delicious Ingredients is a captivating dance theatre work for children, set to live music. Enter a land of aroma and spice that you have to smell to believe.


Follow stubborn Rupert as he attempts to resist the percussive beat of Raf and Lorietta’s drumming, the chocolate tones of Gustavo’s cello and the charms of the heroine Korra. These delightful characters use music and dance to dig deep in the dirt, finding stringed instruments, spices and bountiful harvests.  A feast for the whole family. 


Everything that we consume and create comes from ingredients found in the earth.  There’s magic hidden in every crevice, you just need to dig deep!
