Stella: a figure of girl holding a star outlined by golden glowing lines against a starry sky. A crescent moon glows behind her.
Sun 17 Nov


"Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet" Stephen Hawking.

Stella is a Star Engineer. From her home on the Moon she keeps the stars shining bright for when we need them most, to make a wish or find our way back home.

But down on Earth things are changing. The world is becoming bright, busy and people aren’t looking up. The stars are burning out and it’s up to Stella to save them - but she can’t do it alone.

Using projection, playful performance and aerial circus, Filskit Theatre want to talk about our sky and how sometimes it is important to turn out the lights and wish upon a star.

Presented by Filskit Theatre

Venue: Studio Theatre

"Here’s a set that little hands would love to explore. A tower of scaffolding, decorated with colourful lightbulbs, looms above a super-soft bed. And is that a moon or a hula hoop suspended over the stage? Both, it turns out, in Filskit theatre’s irresistible lunar encounter, which uses aerial circus and clowning to spin a beguiling story" ★★★★ The Guardian (read the full review)

"Stella is funny, engaging and uplifting. Although it’s a circus show, the only thing flashy about it is the light bulbs. It’s quiet and understated, but its two stars shine brightly." ★★★★ Family Stage (read the full review)
