Coming to Storyhouse this Easter holiday.

Imagine being transported into a mystical video game and wondering if you will be locked in it forever!

Experience a stunning blend of both real and virtual environments, as we join Mahi who’s transported into a video game, by magical Moon, Chand. Mahi lands at the Elephant Festival of Jaipur and meets her companion & guide, The Dancing Elephant.

Together they must unlock three levels of Chand’s mystical video game for Mahi to return home. Will they achieve this, or will Mahi be locked in the game forever?

The storytelling is enhanced with sand art animation to represent mother earth, the Elephant Festival of Jaipur and back projection for the Holi festival.

Suitable children aged 6-13 and their families.

Ages:

6 - 13
