“Dinosaur Time Machine isn’t your everyday dinosaur show. It weaves factual information into the fun… circus and puppetry and audience interaction are all used to great affect!"
Adelaide Advertiser

“It is educational, well done, and extremely entertaining!”
Global Media 2016

Buckle up and take a trip in a giant time machine to get up close and personal with a life-sized T-Rex!

Dinosaur Time Machine incorporates up to date scientific facts and discoveries made about dinosaurs and the world that they lived in, and presents them in a fun and highly visual way, incorporating circus, puppetry, simple narrative and imaginative play in this unique educational theatre production, aimed at children aged 3-9.

The idea behind Dinosaur Time Machine is to excite its young audiences about science while at the same time stimulate creativity. It achieves this by delivering an educational show full of facts while utilising the concept of creative play to encourage kids to use their imagination throughout, to help tell the story. The performers engage and interact with students throughout the show, so they feel as though they are part of the adventure. Originally commissioned by Scienceworks, this Award Winning show was written by Pablo Latona, a theatre maker, ex-science communicator, and clown doctor, and utilises the skills within these three different styles of performances to tell the story. Directed and produced by Elena Kirschbaum (Highwire Entertainment).

Two adventurous performers use science, circus, puppetry and imagination to give you a glimpse into history that you will not forget. Dinosaur Time Machine incorporates up-to-date science and discoveries made about dinosaurs and the environment that they lived in, and presents it in a fun and highly visual way, incorporating circus, puppetry, simple narrative and imaginative play in this unique educational theatre production. The science does not stop at palaeontology; concepts such as geography and biology are also incorporated. And did we mention the life-sized baby T-rex?
