STARBIRD. iTheatre’s Children’s Theatre Festival Singapore

An allegory for Africa, this colourful tale was inspired by a passage in a Ben Okri novel.

A hunter finds himself in a beautiful forest where he meets the enchanting Starbird. She naively embraces him but he traps her under a net and steals her children taking them to far away lands. But one little star baby is able to hide and tries to help free her mother from the weight of what is holding her down. How can she possibly succeed? There is only one way!
