The Century Theatre, built in 1977 as a concert chamber to commemorate Napier’s first century as a city, is the setting for the museum's performing arts, film and talks programme. The Theatre bar opens one hour before every show and sells a range of confectionary, alcohol and non-alcohol beverages. Click here for information on how to find us, parking and disability access.
From true heroes of children’s theatre, Little Dog Barking (Guji Guji and Paper Shaper), comes a whimsical, heart-warming story about an unlikely friendship between a duck, a character called Death and their journey through time.
Together they drink tea, go swimming, climb a tree, and provide warmth to each other. Duck asks lots of questions, and learns that Death, as a constant companion, is part of life.
Adapted from the acclaimed book by Wolf Erlbruch, Duck, Death and the Tulip uses puppetry, mime and imagination in this beautiful, award-winning performance to explore the ‘big questions’, showcasing a story of life, mortality and friendship in an elegant, straightforward and thought-provoking way.
A must-see for all ages.
Directed by Nina Nawalowalo, devised by Peter Wilson; design Sue Hill and Nicole Cosgrove; music Gareth Farr; based on the book by Wolf Erlbruch.
