Seeing Stars

Seeing Stars

In 1577, before the invention of the telescope, most people believed the sun goes around the earth. Tycho Brahe, eccentric astrologist/alchemist/cosmologist with a prosthetic nose for every occasion, witnesses the appearance of a new and brilliant star in the sky. In his observatory in the Castle of Uraniborg, Tycho invents amazing cosmological theories with his friend Jeppe, a clairvoyant dwarf, and his drunken pet moose. Join Tycho, Jeppe and Erik the moose for a whistlestop tour through Renaissance astrology – if Erik can stop crashing into the astrological instruments… A funny and light-hearted look at one of science’s forgotten figures told with table top and shadow puppetry and beautiful handmade puppets.
