One day, deep in the heart of the New Zealand bush, a seed falls from the stars. From this seed, a tree grows at a feverish pace until, from its fruit, a Star Girl emerges. Someone is watching this magic most intently, a boy from Earth. By and by, the Star Girl and the Earth Boy fall in love, but darkness threatens, and the boy must go on an adventure through the native landscapes he thought he knew in order to save the girl.
This modern fairy tale is told through mime, acro-balance, aerial silk work and live music. A quaintly epic adventure that is warm, surprising and elegantly beautiful. An international cast of enormous experience pool their talents to create a visual feast for all ages.
Body in Space is excited to debut this show at Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival. We invite everyone to enter a world where movement speaks, to revel in the delight of the imagination, and to believe in the ongoing magic of life's cycles and surprises.
'Exquisitely costumed and choreographed... one of the most creative and innovative shows seen in Wellington for a long time' -The Dominion Post
