Presented by Wesfarmers Arts and the 2023 AWESOME Festival

AWGIE Award-winning Claire Della and the Moon is a tender and beautiful production with puppetry, music, striking visuals and poetic storytelling. Join Claire and space dog Laika as they journey to find their way home.

Claire Della just doesn’t fit in. The things that make sense to everyone else don’t seem to make sense to her, and the world is a loud and frightening place.

So, she retreats to the safety and quiet of the Moon, where there’s no one to bother her and no one for her to disappoint. But when her link between worlds is shattered, Claire must team up with Laika, the adventurous space dog, to find a way home or else be lost forever.

Claire Della and the Moon is a tender and beautiful theatre production for young audiences, addressing issues of mental health, depression and anxiety through the metaphor of a young girl stuck on the moon.

Using puppetry, a lush original score, striking visuals and poetic storytelling (not to mention the roller-skates!), Claire Della and the Moon opens the doors for honest conversation and provides audience members of all ages with a metaphoric vocabulary to positively manage their own mental health. It’s the perfect show for these trying times.
