Sportsball by Cubbin Theatre Company

Tai loves sports, the problem is he’s not very good at them. So he makes up his own game: Sportsball! An exuberant and sensitive solo performance about a child who has a big ball and even bigger dreams. Ōtautahi’s own Cubbin Theatre Company presents their brand new show for children under 5, Sportsball. Designed to encourage a growth mindset in young children, the show celebrates and challenges our nation’s obsession with sports. It explores the impact of impatience and failure, adult expectations and their own limitations as well as encouraging playfulness and thinking outside of the square.

Sportsball is supported by the Creative Communities Scheme through the Christchurch City Council.
