Space Ape

About Space Ape

Space Ape is a new science fiction storytelling performance that will take young audiences on a journey through art, science, and philosophy, and on a mission with a very special Ape.

Once upon a time (approximately twenty years from now) Yorick stands alone, suited up and ready to blast off on his celebrated solo journey to Mars…

Using a range of animated objects, Andy Cannon, Scotland’s leading storyteller for young audiences, tells the story of Space Ape, a new science fiction storytelling production which will take young audiences on a journey through art, science, and philosophy, and on a mission with a very special ape.

Since leaving his award-winning company Wee Stories in 2012, with whom he led many acclaimed productions including Labyrinth and Arthur, writer, performer and professional storyteller Andy Cannon has been creating and performing his own work, including Scota-land, Tales of a Grandson, and Black Beauty. This is Andy’s first visit to the Puppet Animation Festival.

Age Guidance: 7+
Length of Performance: 55 minutes

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Space Ape are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
