A new interactive work for children ages 3-9 suitable for outdoor and alternative spaces as well as theatres

Direction & Choreography: Jennifer Essex

Written by: Harry Man

Cast: 2

Duration: 25 minutes


SPACE REBEL PRINCESS is available for booking 

A young princess dreams of becoming an astronaut, but her parents have more aristocratic goals for her. With the help of the audience she must break free of the fears and preconceptions holding her back, and boldly go where no princess has gone before! Rebel Space Princess is designed for audiences 3-9 years old with lots of opportunity for the children to get involved, helping the princess to achieve her mission as she battles against the strict rules of her upbringing. Inspired by Helen Sharman, the first person from the UK to travel into space, Space Rebel Princess seeks to empower young people to follow their dreams and inspire in them a love of science. 

This is a small scale work suitable for playing in a variety of settings both urban and rural. It focuses on innovative audience engagement, with children helping the rebel princess build a rocket, powering it into space with their voices and movements and joining in her gravity free adventure. Rebel Space Princess combines clowning, physical theatre, dance, craft and poetry to create an innovative piece of joyful, boundary breaking performance. 

"Space Rebel Princess is an interactive, playful and highly skilled physical performance for little ones and families. It’s rare to see a children’s show that has all of these combinations; storytelling, dance, participation, music and lots and lots of fun!  This show would work indoors and outdoors and gives children an opportunity to engage in a thoroughly creative 30 minute show.  A delight!"

"Once Upon a Wall was a fun filled, energy packed performance that entertained our family, from a 3 year old to a 28 year old. Loads of chances for the kids to participate, cleverly written, and an all round lovely little show that was the highlight of the festival for us!"
