After a delightful season as part of the Darebin Arts Speakeasy program at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in April, I’m excited to be presenting Zen the Pigeon Girl in the July school holidays as part of the Rock Surfers Theatre Co.’s program.
Meet Zen. She’s half-pigeon, half-human. Zen has arms instead of wings. She can’t fly, but she can do other cool stuff like play the sitar, and do tricks with her marshmallow nunchucks. Zen is on an important mission: to find her lost mum! She must journey up high, into the sea in the sky – kingdom of the cosmic octopus. But how will she get there without wings? Join Zen as she travels through lands of songful soup caves and farting sunflowers, meeting scaredy goats and bummy worms along the way. A seriously silly new action-adventure tale told through physical comedy, clowning, puppetry and music.
Written with Justin Heazlewood
