Bonus material: Audio story: The Battle of the Birds
An interactive, thought-provoking reflection on New Zealand’s war history using the metaphor of war as fire, followed by a choreographed dance. Covers the Musket Wars, New Zealand Wars (including the New Zealand Settlements Act and the Native Schools Act), the first and second World Wars. We suggest that children dress as flames (e.g. in red/orange with streamers attached to wrists.)
Run time (StoryDance + Dance): approx. 8 mins.
The music for the dance may be streamed directly from our website for your performance, but we recommend avoiding any internet connection issues by downloading it on Spotify or similar (just search for the song title.)
