ZOOOM

ZOOOM

Where children explore what dreams are made of...

Queensland Premiere

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, who begins her transformational journey with light and discovers that the dark is a magical place. Adventures happen and the audience gets involved to help the lost star find its way home.

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, ZOOOM is a beautiful and immersive show that explores what dreams are made of.

The magic begins before the curtains rise. Bring a piece of dark and on arrival exchange it for your own personal light – a little spark to guide you through the show!

And while you're there, be sure to check out the free international installation Museum of the Moon at West Village.
