All-ages |Kids |Tweens

Dunedin’s favourite mad scientist Amadeo returns with a brand new science show, full of explosive science to jump start your 2021 Science Festival.


Orbus is offering free return bus travel for the University Expo at the Otago Business School and the Big Science Show at the University of Otago’s Teacher’s College Auditorium.

This offer is available for any passengers who say to the driver that they are attending the Science Festival. This is to any bus stop in the tertiary precinct on Albany Street, Clyde Street, Union Street East and Harbour Terrace when travelling on routes 14, 15, 37, 38 and 63 on Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th July.

Thanks Orbus!


Amadeo has a new assistant this time... and they don’t always see eye to eye.

Bonnie is an artist, who has no time for science. Equally, Amadeo has no space in his

science-dominated world for the likes of the arts.

But fate has thrown them together and the pair will have to set aside their differences in order to harness the power of both Science and Art - enjoying heaps of experiments, videos, crashes, bangs and a whole lot of other fun along the way.

Maybe arts and science aren’t so different after all?

This show is written by award winning comedian and playwright Abby Howells and directed by Arcade Theatre Company’s Alex Wilson.

Thanks to DCC Arts funding for helping to fund this production.
