A Strange New Space is a magical story about how it feels to be removed from familiar surroundings and thrown into the realms of the unknown - an experience which will be recognizable to many children in our modern world. Using the metaphor of space travel, Tessa Bide's remarkable non-verbal journey will appeal to children of all nationalities and backgrounds.
A Strange New Space follows the journey of a girl called Amira. Amira is obsessed with space and has always dreamt of being an astronaut. One day, Amira’s imagination crash-lands into her reality as she is forced to leave her home, so she packs her bag for the intergalactic trip she has been waiting for. The journey into her imagination is played out on stage, paralleled with her real journey as a refugee. A Strange New Space provides an exciting introduction to theatre and triggers conversations about a topic that has never been more relevant than in today's society. To a lot of children this show is also about leaving home, the home they are used to, and being exposed to a new world. The story reflects the experience of expat children travelling from one country to another, being far away from home and having to adjust to new and unfamiliar places.
