Tanabata Star Festival


Date: 26 – 29 August 2009
Venue: TARA Studio, 356 Garratt Lane, London, SW18 4ES 

Enchanting storytelling theatre for children aged 4-8 yrs and families.
A story of fragility and love based on the legend in which the two stars Hikoboshi (Alter) and Orihime (Vega) meet over the Milky Way (Amanogawa) and fall in love.
When you see two stars shining more brightly than the others on the moonlit night of Tanabata, that is the time the star lovers meet and pledge their love to each other.
Children will learn the Tanabata song and make a wish to hang on the bamboo tree.
This dynamic new project is part of the Japan UK 150 year, which celebrates our cultural and diplomatic relations and has been developed with TARA’s International Associate Artist, designer Nanako Kume, from Tokyo.
