A balloon can be a friend to play with or a maker of friendships. It can hold its breath for days and disappear in an instant. It can make your hair stand on end and fill you with laughter. A balloon can be something loved or something lost; something shared or something broken.


 

Exploration, play and invention are at the heart of the way children make friends.

 

The Moon's A Balloon celebrates balloons, play and friendship in a visual-theatre feast of music, dance, light and play.
