Note: Working to reschedule

*Auckland Arts Festival/Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki (AAF) is sadly unable to open this Thursday 4 March as planned, due to Auckland being at Alert Level 3. We are working hard to hopefully reschedule much of the activity from the first part of our programme including The Griegol. If you hold tickets to this show, we will inform you of the new date and time as soon as details are confirmed. The full list for 4-7 March updates can be found here: and AAF's COVID-19 Ticketing Terms & Conditions here:*

World Premiere

Trick of the Light Theatre’s new show is an eerie, elegant tale without words about death, love, grief and monsters. After a girl’s granny passes away, she starts to suspect she is being pursued by the smoke demon shapeshifter from the old woman’s stories.

In the tradition of Spirited Away and Coraline, The Griegol is a mythic, gorgeously rendered dark fantasy for brave children and lovers of atmospheric theatre. Conjuring magic and laughter out of silhouettes, puppetry, live music and animation, it’s also yet another storytelling masterclass from the wizards of shadowplay who brought us the award-winning The Bookbinder (AAF2019).

50mins approx no interval
Recommended for ages 7+

This show deals with the death of a loved one, and frankly acknowledges death as a part of life.
