A STRANGE NEW SPACE
Presented by Tessa Bide
Mon 24 – Wed 26 July
Mon – Wed: 11am & 2pm
Did you know that Astronauts get taller in space? That our solar system is around 4.6 billion years old? Or that there are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on all of the beaches on Earth?
Amira knows all of these things. She is completely obsessed with space and every night dreams of becoming an Astronaut. But one night, the bangs, whooshes and fizzes of her imagination explode right out of her dreams, becoming a deafening reality. In the darkness, Amira’s Mother tells her that they must leave their hometown to go on an adventure together, to find a new home: a safe space. Hearing the words ‘space’ and ‘adventure’ among the chaos, Amira quickly packs her bag for the intergalactic trip she’s been waiting for…
A completely original one woman show without words, A Strange New Space will meld physical theatre with stunning puppetry and original music. You will be taken on an imagined voyage into space, which is paralleled with Amira’s real-life journey as a refugee across continents, forming an unforgettable introduction to theatre for audience of four years and older.
This production is undergoing a ‘research and development’ phase in partnership with Integrate Bristol, Circomedia, The Trinity Centre and May Park Primary School this Autumn, funded by Arts Council England. The project will be further developed over the Spring of 2017. A National tour will commence in Easter 2017, before continuing internationally in 2018.
A Strange New Space is aimed at ages 4-9.
