Where Magic Lives

A Musical journey for children through the Door of all Possibility

Where Magic Lives is a children’s adaptation of the legend ‘Open the Door' written by Monty Cash. The core of this story is a journey of letting go and trusting the“UNK,” the great unknown, the Tao or whatever you reference wholeness as. The lush musical dreamscape that accompanies this story, born of Monty’s extensive travels thru Europe, adds rich context to Anu Grace’s enactment of the story involving the kids. Together we will soar and swoop, climb and sing, swim with dolphins and rest in silence.

Where Magic Lives offers children a door of Hope and a taste of a very different kind of music with traditional instruments, unusual rhythms, song and dance. Suitable for children 4-11 years.

The first half hour of this show will be an interactive introduction to the beautiful instruments Monty and Anu are using along with a little drumming of simple beats and singing.

"The most profound life changing experiences have happened for me when I have entered that door, the Void, the ‘Unk’ – as we have renamed the Unknown for children. I know I needed a hand to hold – someone whispering to me….. keep falling, keep letting go, trust only yourself. My dreams have become reality through this and I’ve always wanted to make this accessible to others. Hopefully we are able to achieve this through this collaboration.”

Anu Grace has worked as an itinerant music teacher in schools in Oz and New Zealand for many years which led to the writing of a touring childrens’ show based on her original music. During this time she has recorded 7 albums, founded and fronted Halelujah Baby (QLD ) and Chocolate Fish (NZ) and toured ‘The Pop up Ukestra ‘ bringing community music to remote towns. She currently works as a duo in Uke Nomad in WA.
