Did you know that there are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on all the beaches on Earth? Amira does.

She is obsessed with space and dreams of becoming an astronaut. One night, the bangs, whooshes and fizzes of her imagination explode out of her dreams, becoming a deafening reality. Amira goes to pack her bag for the intergalactic trip that she’s been waiting for...

A nonverbal, physical show for the whole family using puppetry and original music, the show is an imaginary voyage into space, paralleled with Amira’s real-life journey as a refugee.

SATURDAY 24 MARCH 3PM – 3.45PM & 5PM – 5.45PM
Tickets: £8

Suitable for 4+
