“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet” - Stephen Hawking
Stella is a Star Engineer. From her home on the Moon she keeps the stars shining bright for when we need them most, to make a wish or find our way back home.
But down on Earth things are changing. The world is becoming bright, busy and people aren’t looking up. The stars are burning out and it’s up to Stella to save them, but she can’t do it alone.
Using projection, playful performance and aerial circus, we want to talk about our sky and how sometimes it is important to turn out the lights and wish upon a star.
Audience praise for Stella…
"Dear Stella and Ivy, We thought you were both really funny. I am a little bit afraid of the dark, but will be braver now." - George, age 6"It was a wonderful show full of magic." - Audience Member"The children were mesmerised. They were all inspired to make a wish." - Oakdale Primary
There will be a workshop with the company after the show at 3.30pm in the Dance Studio (limited spaces available, booking essential)

Part of Dance Umbrella’s line-up of international artists for its 2019 festival, LA-based dancer and choreographer Mythili Prakash was chosen by Akram Khan as his ‘choreographer of the future’ for DU’s Four by Four Commissions. Here and Now is a contemporary reflection on Mythili's relationship with time; as a mother, an artist and a human being. Inspired by the illusory nature of time in Eastern philosophy and myth, where whole lifetimes are played out in the blink of an eye, Here and Now explores the human struggle to be in the present.

Jo is misunderstood… by nearly everyone, friends (if he had any), teachers, even mum and dad…
Everyone keeps telling Jo that he is just… ‘different’… that he doesn’t fit in. So, when a mysterious red balloon floats by, Jo is given the chance to fly away into the sky above and he doesn’t think twice about going.
Once in the clouds, Jo meets a host of colourful, strange and intriguing characters, who are the most ‘different’ kind of people he’s ever met. Together they embark on a cloud hopping, star jumping, stratospheric adventure and teach Jo that sometimes being ‘different’ is the best thing in the world.
Like so many children with special educational needs, Jo struggles to find a place for himself in everyday life. Exploring communication, social interaction and feelings of isolation, Up, Up and Away is a story for all children who perceive the world though their own frame.
“Leaving every child feeling treasured and with a beautiful moral to the story, it will awaken the magic in everyone” ★★★★★ The Reviews Hub
