The show is definitely all about community. The audience join forces with the main tribes people on a quest to save a land; they are involved in the show by helping to answer questions, helping to make musical instruments, writing the jokes for the end scene, and making a cocoon for Kenneth the caterpillar, not forgetting catching the tree tricksters and saving Hapu. The only way that they can save Kalku is by being a team and working together. I think it's an important lesson for eveyone not just the children coming to see the show - everybody needs help at some point. For example in the making of the community project, people have shared their workloads with others in the group because no one can do everything, and it's only in working together that we've managed to pull the show together.
