This show is the result of a commission by the Hidden Gardens (Glasgow) for the event Starry Nights, Cosy Fires. It celebrates multiculturalism through the telling of stories and myths about the starry skies.

All around the world, cultures separated by thousands of miles and thousands of years have been telling different stories about the same constellations. How can such an immense ceiling still today give us such a sense of togetherness?

Using a unique costume to create shadow puppetry, music from the performer's homeland and several stories from Egypt to the Celtic myths, this show will warm the hearts of children and adults.
