Phil Hargreaves, Creative Producer at Déda says:

“I am really looking forward to having the Hikapee team at Déda with the stunning Moonfall. After seeing the show live, I knew it would be perfect for our audiences. It’s a magical show that uses outstanding Dance and Circus to tell an accessible and beautiful story. I can’t wait to see it again!"

Edd Casey, Co-Artistic Director and Moonfall performer adds:

“We’re super excited to bring Moonfall to Derby, especially as it’s during the week leading up to Christmas. Hikapee’s work is all about taking the tricks and excitement of circus and using it to create a great story, which takes the audience on a journey. Moonfall is for all the family, and has moments of beauty, comedy, adventure and circus thrills for audiences of all ages!’
