A fearless young princess raised for royalty but not for rocketry, dreams of becoming an astronaut. Outsmarting the confines of her palace upbringing, and with the help of the audience, the princess must break free of the fear that holds her back, and boldly go where no princess has gone before! Children get involved, helping the princess to achieve her mission as constructs her first ever rocketship in a land where reading and writing has been outlawed…
Inspired by Helen Sharman, the first person from the UK to travel into space, Space Rebel Princess seeks to empower young people, to inspire in them a life-long love of stories, and to encourage them to chase their dreams. This is a small-scale work which focuses on innovative audience engagement and adventure. Space Rebel Princess combines clowning, physical theatre, dance, craft and poetry to create a piece of joyful, genre-breaking performance.
In the year that marks the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon as part of NASA’s Apollo 11 lunar mission, Space Rebel Princess reminds us to look to the stars.
