Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo
Elder Hall. University of Adelaide. RCC
February 29. Until March 12.

In the extensive kids program in the Adelaide Fringe there is even something for the junior palaeontologist. And no better than the gee-whiz large scale puppetry of Erth-Visual and Physical studio to bring the ancient past vividly back before us.

Her progress from Parkside High School and the Music Conservatorium of the University of Adelaide to the performance stages and, even more dramatically, the political arenas of London, is fascinating to follow.
