An exploration of the importance of memories and how they make us who we are.
Aerial-dance, puppetry and music, bring everyone into the bright and colourful memories of Tali, a refugee girl arriving in Scotland with her family. The family feels strange and other, with a desperate need to fit in and forget. Tali, told not to remember, finds her memories crumpling and ripping before her eyes, until her family realises that the only way to be a family in this new place, is to remember. Captivating music and stunning visuals bring to life memories of wedding parties, chasing chickens and dancing in the air with birds.
“The show’s use of music is so compelling, though, and the visual images of the voyage so gorgeous, that the story becomes steadily more entrancing as it goes on…” Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman on Moonbeam on a Cat’s Ear.
