A young female performer of colour stands, arms outstretched. In her hands she hold on to two large pieces of material that are hanging from the ceiling. These look like big butterfly wings behind her.

An immersive adventure to the moon that blends storytelling with aerial circus and dynamic contemporary dance.

Maja has wings that sparkle and shimmer. Join them on their joyful, transformational journey as they explore the world and outer space as a Rainbow Butterfly. Inspired by the lifecycle of a butterfly, this children’s story is an invitation to honour our imagination, ourselves and Mother Earth.  

This event gently explores what it is to be non-binary, whilst celebrating heroes such as Mae Jemison, the first Black woman astronaut. Help Maja fly all the way to the moon: because the Earth without art is just eh!

Presented in partnership with South East Dance.
