Moominpappa at Sea – adapted from the book by acclaimed Finnish author Tove Jansson

Moominpappa at Sea follows the plucky Moomin family as they begin an exciting new life on a rocky island far out to sea. Each family member embarks on an adventure – encountering the island’s mysterious inhabitants and discovering their own sense of place.

A solo performer brings to life the world of the Moomins with puppets and physical performance to create the imagery of the landscape. An atmospheric soundscape transports you to a windswept island – from the rumblings of the ocean to the squawks of sea birds.

Moominpappa at Sea motivates students to reflect on their own personal and social freedoms and to explore how they express themselves in relation to others and the environment.
