Once upon a time, approximately twenty years from now, Yorick stands alone, suited up and ready to blast off in a rocket on his celebrated journey to Mars.

Space Ape is a new science fiction storytelling performance for children aged 7+ that will take young audiences on a journey through art, science, and philosophy, and on a mission with a very special Ape. Andy Cannon, Scotland’s leading storyteller for young audiences, tells the tale, sharing his passion for space travel, using everyday objects and animation.

Space Ape is supported by Creative Scotland, The Edinburgh International Science Festival and Puppet Animation Scotland.

One of our most gifted storytellers… Andy Cannon has us spellbound.
