School Shows

Our Show

BaDaBoom is an all-female cast of percussionists, drummers, puppeteers, circus artists and storytellers bringing schools an interactive show of percussion and movement using unconventional, homemade, and recycled instruments. 

Through the use of puppets, music and storytelling our aim is two-fold: educate children on the wonders of the ocean and how we can protect it, and cultivate an appreciation and love for music by showing how it can be enjoyed and played in a multitude of different ways. 

Clever stories, environmental awareness, and quirky music are at the heart of BaDaBoom! We hope to see you soon.

BaDaBoom came out to the Mangere Refugee Resettlement Centre as part of the Refugees as Survivors (RASNZ) Activities for Wellbeing Programme. BaDaBoom was a huge hit for newly arrived refugees at the centre! Their approach in creating an educational narrative using music and theatre engaged everyone. The musicians and theatre professionals were of high quality and they were able to adapt their show to the needs of their audience. I would highly recommend BaDaBoom to any educational provider or community who are looking to relay educational narratives in a fun and easily digestible way. Keep up the awesome work.

We thoroughly enjoyed BaDaBoom's live performance at our school, filled with topical storytelling, beautiful costumes, fabulous movement, clever puppetry and evocative music.  The story wove the whole performance together, and our children were entranced from the outset.  We are looking forward to seeing their next performance!

Just wanted to say a huge thanks for your amazing performance on Friday. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the whole performance and are still talking about it today. I was amazed by how quiet the students were during the performance, and when I looked at their faces saw they were overwhelmed by what they were watching. You showed our staff members all that can be achieved by using "found" objects and made us realise that our music programme could be based on what we think of as unusable items.
