This beautiful tender story is told through the style of Object Theatre. Inspired by Scandinavian fairy tales and performances of world-famous theatres from Denmark, we decided to tell the story of an unusual girl called Star-Eyed, who sees the world differently. We wanted to share with the audience the feeling of a wonderous world, where the landscape is made up of paper forms, wooden objects that come to life in the hands of artists, and the manipulation of light and shadow takes us to the magical expanses of snowy Finland.
