Erth have built an Australia wide, and increasingly international reputation based on exceptional work. In demand for events and festivals, the Company inspires audiences with their unique and dynamic vision.

We are a visual and physical theatre from Australia with 20 years history. We tour not only in Australia, but also worldwide!

Dinosaur Zoo is a very cool show- you can experience the live animals. Steve Irwin has already done it at an Australian Zoo, but we have dinosaurs in our show!

The kids may touch and feed some dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures in the show.  But if children misbehave, we took him to feed the dinosaurs ( joke ) !

Q: How did you come up with the idea to make the Dinosaur Zoo?

We made the real-size dinosaur figures in cooperate with many Zoos worldwide. One day, we decided to make some typical Australian prehistoric creatures as figures for a show very interesting and educational. Many people come to us after the show and tell us, how much they enjoyed the show and they were happy to come to the show.

Q: Is there any story line for the Dinosaur Zoo?

There is no clear story line, because this is a real live animal show. But of course, every dinosaur has its own background, such as where it is from, what it eats and which habits they have.

Q: The design of the dinosauria is highly acclaimedWhose idea is it? And how do you make it?

In our team in the studio we have wonderful artists and they are the sources of the our creative performances. All related things from the design of the figures to the sound are made by them. 

Q: Who are your teams?

 It’s unbelievable how our team can vary according to the diverse places of the performances. Our actors are fantastic people with vast amounts of skill and experience.
We also like to work with real zoo-keepers and let them present the show. It’s really cool since they really take care of animals. I am just a artistic director who know lots about dinosaurs…even though many people think I am a paleontologist! 

We also work with some puppetry artists who wonderfully bring our dinosaurs to life.

The science interactive theatre group was highly acclaimed in Australia. 《Dinosaur Zoo》will lead the audience into a whole new dimension of theater experience.
