Dare to dream, and boldly go!

Once upon a time, approximately twenty years from now, Yorick stands alone, suited up and ready to blast off in a rocket on his celebrated journey to Mars.

Space Ape is a science fiction storytelling performance for children aged 6+ that will take young audiences on a journey through art, science, and philosophy, and on a mission with a very special Ape.  Andy Cannon, Scotland’s one of Scotland’s most-loved storytellers, tells the tale, sharing his passion for space travel, using everyday objects and animation.
