- International aerial artist Theaker Von Ziarno and Swamp Juice Puppet Show billed to be popular summer attractions
- Dubai Marina Mall takes part in ‘Everything You Desire This Summer’ promotion
Dubai Marina Mall, the lifestyle, shopping and entertainment heart of New Dubai, is marking ‘Summer in Dubai’ with a spectacular array of entertainment choices, billed to become the most popular attractions for Dubai Marina’s families. Among the highlights of this summer’s retail and entertainment promotion are Theaker Von Zianro, the international street aerialist, and a special shadow puppet show: Swamp Juice.
Von Ziarno, a New Zealand born artist, will perform the aerial show titled ‘Minerva,’ in the ceiling of the Atrium inside the mall. The shows will be held from June 30 to July 9. To compliment the show, fun circus workshops to entertain children will be held July 3 to 9 at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm daily. Two performers will teach children various circus skills including plate spinning, balancing and juggling.
Swamp Juice, a shadow puppet theatre show featuring punk snails, opera-singing mice and neurotic snakes in a swamp, will be held from July 23 to 31. The audience can watch the transformation of various bits of household junk into intricate silhouette characters, creating a true visual feast. Swamp Juice will be showing in a purpose built theatrette exclusive to the mall. Young children might want to bring along a parent to hold on to during the scary bits! Tickets are free but limited, available at the Guest Service Desk.
Puppet making workshops will also be held around the same time and will show children how to make puppets and take part in a puppet show. They will have a variety of colours, shapes, sizes and decorations to choose from to make their puppet unique. The workshops will be held from July 17 to 30 from 6pm to 8pm.
Other highlights at Dubai Marina Mall include a Mr Men Show called Dillydale Dance-A-Thon, a stage show based on the original Mr Men and Little Miss Books created by Roger Hargreaves, to be held until July 3; a Cinnabon event, teaching children how to roll and bake Cinnabons to take home, to be held from July 10 to 16; and a meet & greet with Modhesh on July 17, 18 and 19, in addition to performances and live entertainment by musicians and stilt walkers throughout the promotion.
