About the Show Less...

After a sell-out run in 2012, this moving tale of love, loss, space and time returns to the Unicorn. Read More >

Kepler is an ordinary man who loves two things beyond all others: the cosmos and his wife Tomasina. After a sudden and tragic loss he looks to the stars for answers and journeys deep into space to keep the thing most precious to him alive.

Something Very Far Away is a strange and beautiful exploration of sadness, mortality and wonder. The show is animated in front of the audience and is told through projection, puppetry and music with no words at all

After a sell-out run in 2012, this moving tale of love, loss, space and time returns to the Unicorn with its unique blend of traditional and digital animation to delight children and adults alike.
