“The ensuing entertainment is a voyage of surprise and wonderment…applause all round”
The Barefoot Review

“Entrancing and always enchanting, appealing not only to kids but to grown-ups as well”
The Advertiser

Combining old school whimsy with state of the art technology, ZOOOM is an enchanting story of a child alone in her bedroom, unable to sleep and curious to understand.

She begins a transformational journey with light and discovers that the dark is a magical place.

Adventures happen and with the assistance of the audience the girl discovers a community of people who can help her solve problems. Part music video, part dream, ZOOOM is a show about all sorts of perspective.

Inspired by iconic children’s book "Harold and The Purple Crayon,” ZOOOM channels the same philosophy; a child who makes sense of their world through art. The show is driven by the power of ‘child logic’, combined with the magic of science.

Using original music, lasers and projections, the performance takes the audience on an immersive journey. We unpack the science of animation from pixel to line to animation, as miniature worlds are blown up to be larger than life.

ZOOOM begins at home or in the classroom, as we invite our audience to bring a piece of dark to the show. They arrive and their dark is exchanged for their own personal light – a little spark that will keep them safe and help guide them through the interactive sessions of the show.
