An immersive family adventure to the moon! An immersive experience that blends traditional storytelling with aerial circus, graceful contortion and dynamic contemporary & Hip Hop dance – perfect for ages 3+ Maja has wings that sparkle and shimmer! Their joy on this transformational journey is tangible as they explore the world and outer space as a Rainbow Butterfly!

Inspired by the lifecycle of the butterfly, this children’s story is an invitation to honour our imagination, ourselves and Mother Earth, gently opening up an invitation to explore what it is to be non binary whilst celebrating heroes such as Mae Jemison, the first Black woman astronaut as well as inviting audience members to take part in the show, make sounds and have fun! Performed by artists from the global majority, this show celebrates how unique we all are using creativity, carnival, aerial circus, beatbox, & Hip Hop dance to help Maja fly all the way to the moon: because the Earth without Art is just Eh!
