Stage Shows

We have four fully tour-ready shows, each combining a unique narrative, connecting amazing science and engineering demonstrations.

Each show is readily adaptable to suit a variety of spaces, including lecture halls and smaller performance spaces.

Little Bang Big Bang—It’s Nanogirl’s lab assistant, Boris’ birthday, and with the help of some clever science, (including exploding balloons, instant liquid nitrogen ice cream and a fire extinguisher-powered shopping trolley) it’s going to be the best party ever!

Engineering Magic—Boris has ambitions of becoming a magician, but he’ll need Nanogirl’s help to get his illusions to work. Will Nanogirl survive being hit by a hammer on a real life bed of nails?!

Out of this World—Boris is determined to be an astronaut and fly into space! This high-action show is filled with space science experiments, from rocket jet-packs to a real life tornado!

Bring on the Noise—Nanogirl’s trusty lab assistant Boris has his eyes on the prize of a talent quest, but he’ll need Nanogirl’s help to get his act sounding good enough to blow the judges away! Featuring a huge airzooka, a flaming sound frequency tube and dancing laser beams.

Mātātoa—Performed in the Nanogirl team’s trademark explosive and fun style, Mātātoa is a bilingual (Māori and English) show that rediscovers mātauranga Māori passed down through pūrākau, our myths and legends. Connecting audiences to the knowledge around them and showing how this knowledge—and the new discoveries that our tamariki make in the future—can help to shape our world. This show explores the legends of Tāwhirimatea, Rūaumoko, Tangaroa, and more.

Touch Tour

A theatre show unlike any other!

For each of our theatre shows, we’re able to offer a Touch Tour experience for blind and low-vision audience members who are given the opportunity to meet Nanogirl performers, touch costumes and selected props and get a sneak preview of experiments that are included in the performance.

Street Science

Exhilarating, interactive and up-close live science demonstrations.

In addition to our mall shows and full stage shows, we offer Street Science—highly engaging, interactive science shows created specifically for outdoor ‘busking’ style engagements.

Often presented in festival settings alongside our full stage shows, Street Science brings audiences close to the action, with Nanogirl scientists engaging directly with the crowds.
