We arrive in a place and space unknown. Meeting in the middle we discover each other as strangers, then as friends. Surrounded by things both strange and familiar, together we look for possibilities, conduct experiments and discover a world of play. Be taken on a journey of joy, transformation and imagination as this intimate production unfolds a gentle story of resilience and friendship, using exquisite physical storytelling, object theatre and interactivity.  More info

Imaginary broke the rules of audience and players. They reached out to the kids, wrapped them up in a story and pulled them in to play...The show was a beautiful tale of building friendship, explored with minimal dialogue and lots of fun, physical storytelling...Magic

Look will do for your child what the very best theatre does for you.

A truly wonderful children’s work.
