  • You dont have to let go of your dreams.

    In a timeless old house on Eustace Street

    a ten-year old, space-obsessed girl wants

    you to share in her quest to defy gravity and

    journey to the stars. Voyage with her into the

    past through rooms filled with photographs

    and treasured objects, dramatic fragments and

    stories, music, animation and film. Discover

    a lost era, a time when we dared to dream big

    dreams about leaving our own tiny blue planet

    and venturing out into the distant cosmos.

    As a child, Lucy admired the evil Queen far more than the fairy princess.

    Who held the keys to the kingdom? Who had everyone jump at her command? One day, Lucy would.

    20 years on she has fulfilled her dream, becoming head of her department at Harper, Harper and Harperson.

    All is well in her kingdom until a ghost from her childhood plunges Lucys world into shadow.

    Five devotees wake up

    in a remote barn following

    their cults mass ascension.

    Disorientated and confused,

    they cant understand why

    they are still down here and

    not up there. Now these

    five followers without a leader,

    five sheep without a shepherd,

    five dimwits without a clue

    must choose a new Chosen

    One but cant decide who

    to choose.

  • Stumble upon a dark pathway, twisting and turning to

    a hidden world where beautiful and unsettling creatures stir.

    Manipulating and embellishing their realities, watch as each of them

    creates their own universe. Bodies radiate with energy and colours

    explode, drenching the space with sensory-overloaded abundance.
