AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Ten year-old Stella loves living out at Narangarra. But when her family moves to town, the city kids think she's strange. In a dark room in Stella's cramped apartment block lives a blind astronomer. As Stella befriends Mr Pleiades and becomes his eyes, she learns that our greatest difficulties seem trivial when compared to the vast beauty of the Universe.

Using music and imagery, Stella & the Moon Man combines music, shadow puppetry and digital video to create a fantastic stage world with a cast of actors, puppeteers, musicians - and children. Suitable for children aged 5 - 12 years and their families.'
