Main event Image.

The Griegol, part of the Auckland Arts Festival, is a new play by Wellington company Trick of the Light. It is a very visual, family-friendly show suitable for Deaf and hard of hearing people. It contains music but no dialogue.

The Griegol is a made-up monster that looks like smoke. The play is about a girl who thinks she is being chased by this mysterious smoke-monster after her grandmother passes away.

Trick of the Light specialise in shadow puppetry. The story is told only through these tricks and beautiful design. It is a bit of a spooky story but okay for brave kids. 

There is no interpretation for this performance. The storytelling is all through movement and visual effects, with no speech. Suitable for families with Deaf members and hard of hearing people.

Recommended for ages 7+
Contains references to death and grief
