What The Moon Saw

2Faced Dance

A magical journey through the night.

What The Moon Saw is a new dance and circus performance for little ones and their families.

 This interactive re-imagination of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale brings you a trove of secrets and surprises that will delight, excite and charm.

Alone in the world and scared of the dark, young Jack opens his bedroom curtains to find a familiar, friendly face, The Moon. Shining brightly, the Moon teaches Jack how to be brave by taking him on an amazing, inspiring adventure across the world.


FREE Foyer Craft Activities before and after each performance + join in the fun, come dressed in your pyjamas!

What the Moon Saw is supported by Arts Council England and co-commissioned by The Place, DanceEast and DanceXchange. Supported by Gulbenkian, Canterbury and The Point, Eastleigh.
