Paper Aeroplane

Half Moon presents a Lots of Odds Theatre production for ages 3-7

DIGITAL ON DEMAND TOUR – Lift-off on a journey full of music, physicality and zooming paper aeroplanes. Available throughout 2021 and 2022.

Paper Aeroplane is being presented as an ‘as live’ performance for digital broadcast, as part of Half Moon’s digital performance platform. 

Put your sofa in the front row with a digital performance of Paper Aeroplane, live-recorded and professionally filmed and edited. Join us for an online performance that puts the best seats in the house into your own home.

Take flight with two new friends as they soar through clouds, fly over distant seas and circle faraway lands. They touch down in mysterious new places and discover oceans to swim in, rocks to clamber over and bridges to cross. But where will they fly to next?

Lift-off on a journey full of music, physicality and zooming paper aeroplanes, where sometimes the skies are not as clear as we first think.

Developed with children who have shared their experiences of losing loved ones, Paper Aeroplane sensitively explores loss and bereavement, the challenges we face when trying to move on, and how we can help one another along the way.

Paper Aeroplane is Lots of Odds’ brand new show for children, following the highly popular The Goose Who Flew.
