A new story for young people aged eight and over with storytelling, South Asian & Australian dance, live music, puppetry and digital projections

Storytelling, South Asian and Australian dance, live music, haunting puppetry and wild digital projections swirl together in Moby Duck’s unique and unmissable performance of Wild Child – a new story for young people aged eight and over and their families and friends.

A boy is brought in from the wild to a mission. The nuns think he’s a savage, because he doesn’t speak their language. Worse still, he believes in strange, mischievous spirits, called the Little People, who taught his tribe to sing, dance and paint magic, and who now live hidden from human view. Join Moby Duck to see what happens next…

Wild Child is based on real-life experiences, as told to the writer by aboriginal elders in Central Australia and North-West India, and by some of the last surviving Europeans who taught them.
