What is Morph?

The Morph Puppet Festival is a Magic Play House event, encouraging collaboration from all across the region, in order to bring a magical winter festival to the Far North, and capture people’s hearts.

With funding from the Far North District Council, Creative Communities and Spark, and the generosity of The Turner Centre & participating shopkeepers of Kerikeri, the inaugural 2022 festival will be the first of many.

An Event for All Ages

With varied and exciting components, including plays, workshops, guest speakers, interactive activities and a concert, there will be something (actually, lots of things!) for everyone to enjoy.

To kick off the Morph Puppet festival for 2022, we’ll be taking over ten shop fronts in KERIKERI CBD for an enchanting Matariki-themed shadow puppet series, with help from our local schools and groups.

Then it’s on to the TURNER CENTRE for three full days of fun, taking advantage of all the venue space and filling every corner with fun!

Success! You're on the list.

“Puppet theatres nurture a truly unique artistic language that can never be eclipsed by modern technological entertainments… It seems to reflect a deeply human instinct to represent ourselves.”
