Nelson Fringe: The boy with wings

Saturday 8th May 2021

How do we trust our inner map? How do we find our own wings?
As Jack gazes in awe at the birds setting off on their long migration from New Zealand to Alaska, he wonders what he might achieve if he dared to dream. The Boy with Wings is an epic fable of Jack’s life-altering journey following only the compass of his spirit.
This is a comic, touching, educational and environmental story that links New Zealand to the rest of the world via the flight of the kuaka (bar-tailed godwit).

Birdlife Productions have taken their award-winning shows around the world, delighting children wherever they go.
Currently on tour around New Zealand schools and festivals, The Boy with Wings uses exquisitely handcrafted sets and puppets, comedy, storytelling and original songs.
Nelson Fringe Festival is using 2021 as a year to re-group, re-energise and create building blocks for the future, by thinking a bit laterally, a bit sideways, and a bit backwards. It’s part of the constant challenge of figuring what being a Fringe is all about.
