Erth’s Prehistoric World

Bringing ancient creatures from land and sea together in one show, Erth’s Prehistoric World is the perfect combination of theatrical magic and charm. It takes the audience to the bottom of the ocean to discover ancient bio-luminescent creatures and incredible marine reptiles, and then back to dry land to witness some of the most amazing dinosaurs to have ever walked this Earth…

Dinosaurs are a gateway to learning, inspiring young minds to consider an array of subjects from science to literature, geology to bio engineering, and natural history to mathematics. Dinosaurs have become a curious link between child and parent, grandparent, guardian and educator. The learning opportunities are immense.

Experience the creatures of your imagination coming to life on stage in this enthralling new show!

About Erth

Erth is a company fuelled by beautiful accidents; a team of creators, makers and performers pushing the limits of design, content and experience.

Erth’s puppetry-based theatrical productions and innovative community projects have challenged and inspired audiences for more than twenty-five years, driven by a special interest in natural history, First Nations stories and urban mythology. With a prime focus on environmental sustainability, conservation and social justice, the company’s core motivation is the creation of emotionally impactful artistic work. By connecting with audiences young and old, Erth educates, inspires, motivates and empowers people to make an impact in the world through their own actions.

Today the company is recognised internationally as an innovator of physical and visual theatre, and a creator of brave, unbridled work for children.

Director’s Note

‘Erth’s journey into prehistoric times has provided a platform for the company to engage with children on a level that has surprised even us.

Erth is not a company that exploits dinosaurs for commercial gain, but as a way of starting long and lasting relationships with our worldwide audiences, united in our love and wonder for the natural world.’ Scott Wright
