Event Details

Jelly or Jam is a fun-filled family show – the ‘gooeyest’ kids’ show at the Auckland Arts Festival in March.

Have you ever seen a giant block of jelly – wobbly, jiggly, and strong enough to stand on? From award-winning circus creators, Jascha Boyce and Joren Dawson, Jelly or Jam takes audiences on an acrobatic adventure into the brains of young humans. Guided by interviews with kids about what emotions are and how we feel them, this New Zealand premiere of the hit Australian family show examines the control we have over our individuality through testing the physical limits of two giant blocks of jelly.

Don’t miss this rollercoaster filled with real stories about being a kid, and plenty of squishy, messy jelly that will inspire people, young and old, to ask the question, “What makes you, you?”

A morning of theatre that has been described by one parent as “G-rated jelly wrestling”, this 50-minute show is sure to be everyone’s jam. It plays two performances at the Speigeltent at Aotea Square on 16 and 17 March.

Tickets are on sale now.
