Tarzanna Touring 2019 with support from Grants for the Arts!

We are excited to announce that we have successfully received funding from Grants for the Arts to tour Tarzanna to six exciting venues this year! 

Anna doesn’t like mess, she likes things to be in order but her neat world is turned upside down when she is magically transported to the rainforest. There she discovers wonders she’s never seen before. Wild creatures appear and dance before her as she swings through the jungle of her dreams. When her new home is put in danger, can she let go and become the wild Tarzanna she needs to be in order to save her new found friends?

Tarzanna is a playful aerial theatre show for all the family to enjoy. Watch the performers literally climb, jump and swing through the air.

“An absolute treat, a real highlight of Inside Out 2017 and needs to be seen far and wide. Girl power!” Suba Das Associate Director, Curve

A kick ass, girl power aerial theatre show for 3-8 year olds and their families.

Tarzanna is an indoor or outdoor aerial theatre show for 3-8 year olds, the show will delight young audiences as they are taken on a journey into a magical world through playful aerial storytelling, moments of interactive fun, puppetry and acrobatic brilliance.

According to a study published in the American periodical Science, by the time they are six years old, girls already think that they are less capable than boys. Tarzanna tells the story of an alternative female role model who is the hero, in charge of her own destiny and who has the power make change.
