Horse + Bamboo Theatre present


  • Written and directed by Shamshad Khan and Bob Frith. Music by Arun Ghosh.
  • 2 March 2018 - 3 March 2018
  • The Studio

A mixed media show with mother, daughter and the cosmos centre stage.

Meet Rahmi, a young Pakistani girl who travelled half way around the world to be with her husband.

Now meet her daughter Azrah who is struggling to find where she belongs.

THE MOONWATCHER is their story, developed from the stories of South Asians who travelled to Britain. It explores how different values impact on the complex relationship of one mother and her daughter.

Beautifully told through masks, puppetry, spoken word and original music. A stunning multimedia show. THE MOONWATCHER asks where do any of us really belong?

Suitable for adults (though anyone over age 9 may also enjoy it).
