Details

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen
Reimagined by 2Faced Dance Company

A magical journey through the night.

A new dance and circus performance for little ones and their families. Alone in the world and scared of the dark, young Jack opens his bedroom curtains to find a familiar friendly face, The Moon.

The Moon shinning bright, teaches Jack how to be brave by taking him on an amazing adventure across the world, showing him all that he sees and teaching him all that he knows.

Watch Jack’s world come to life in this short interactive tale of dance, circus and music, bringing you a trove of secrets and surprises that will delight, excite and charm the whole family.

For the ultimate adventure come dressed in your pyjamas!

What The Moon Saw is co-commissioned by The Place, Dance East & DanceXchange and supported by Arts Council England, The Gulbenkian, Canterbury & The Point, Eastleigh.

Choreography: Tamsin Fitzgerald
Score: Angus Macrea
Set & Costume: Yann Seabra
