‘What the Tortoise Taught Us”  Life lessons from the wisest creature on the planet.

Meet Zelva, the incredible, animatronic, giant tortoise who has walked the earth for hundreds of years, and now she wants to share her time with you.

Zelva’s beautiful shell becomes a magical stage, as she and her loyal companion recreate their favourite adventures together using miniature props, puppets... and a few special effects.

Listen and learn from Zelva... you can ask her anything and she’ll share her wisdom. She may even draw you a beautiful picture or give you her tortograph. 

This mindful, fantastical show is a mobile performance, comprising a series of short interactions and delightful engagements.
