ZOOOM

A lost star finds its way home

Unable to sleep, a child goes on an imaginary adventure throughout the universe.

Using original music, lasers and projections, ZOOOM brings the audience on an adventure to help a lost star find its way home.Inspired by iconic children’s book Harold and The Purple Crayon, ZOOOM channels the same philosophy – a child who makes sense of their world through art.

ZOOOM begins at home or in the classroom, as we invite our audience to “bring a piece of dark” to the show. Upon arrival, their dark is exchanged for their own personal light – a little spark that will keep them safe and guide them through the interactive performance.

Captivating and heartfelt, ZOOOM is an immersive performance that explores what dreams are made of.
