Valentina’s Galaxy - an intergalactic inspiration for starry eyed 2-6 year olds and their adults.
Inspired by women in space including Valentina Tereshkova (first ever woman in space) and Mae Jemison (first woman of colour in space) Valentina’s Galaxy is a fascinating, funny and moving experience created especially for young space cadets.
Designed by Katy Wilson and Directed by Heather Fulton of Too Many Penguins? fame, this immersive performance will captivate children and adults alike with a combustible concoction of experiments, rocket launches and star gazing.
Originally commissioned by Edinburgh International Science Festival working in partnership with Imaginate and Starcatchers Valentina's Galaxy has been performed as part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival, Edinburgh International Children's Festival and as part of the Made in Scotland Showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.
