    “A visual adventure with puppetry, movement and music for children ages 3+”

    In the middle of the night Rosie, Toby Toby, the cat and the mouse sneak out to play in the shadow of the apple tree. When Toby Toby steals the moon from the sky they go on an adventure across the stars and the sea. But, is it all just a dream?

    Based on the book by author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay, written in French (Voyage au Clair de Lune) and English, Moonbeam on a Cat’s Ear is a visual journey into an exciting world of dreams and imagination. Jabuti Theatre’s adaptation captures the beauty and detail of Marie-Louise’s illustrations using puppetry, physical theatre and magical light boxes and brings it all to life with a mesmerising original musical soundscape and score. Using only the text from the book (original in English and French, can also be offered in Scottish Gaelic, Spanish and Italian with further translations possible), this is a simple, yet visually compelling story about two children and their adventure with the moon.

    Director's Tom Gasek and Miki Cash conceived the Idea for “Ain’to No Fish” in the early 90′s while working together in the UK. Around this period catastrophic events at sea involving oil spills had been having devastating effects on wildlife and the sea, as they still do today.

    They were influenced by the optimistic late 1940′s show tune “Some Days There Just Ain’t No Fish” Written by Carl Sigman and Bob Russell and performed by Hoagy Carmichael, which they felt would lend itself wonderfully to a contemporary Arctic setting while juxtaposing against the darker subtext within the film. (The film is based on hungry seals trying to fish in a world depleted of this natural resource due to man’s lack of respect for his environment.)

    The film is currenty screening at film festivals worldwide
