How far are the stars?
could we ever catch one?
«STARHUNT» is a new circus performance with live music, dedicated to children aged 3 to 8 years old. The show takes place in the cosmos among the stars, and its main theme revolves around humans' relationship with wishes and dreams. Throughout the performance, children actively contribute to the story with input and, at times, physically accompany the performers on stage.
A passionate star researcher named Orion encounters the Star—a mysterious creature from the universe. The star researcher hopes that the Star can fulfill all his wishes and dreams, bringing to life the dreams and desires of the children around him. The Star attempts to satisfy these wishes with the help of her magical violins, stardust, and magic. Unfortunately, her attempts fail, leading to an unexpected discovery. In the end, the magical Star, the Star Researcher, and all the children realize that it's not just magic that can turn people's wishes and dreams into reality. People can achieve their dreams and have their wishes fulfilled by following the light that already exists in their own hearts.
"Our goal is to encourage the children in the pursuit of their dreams and help them realise they hold the power to overcome the hardships of life."

We are named Katarzyna Sanak and Louis "Milo" Poisot, and we are a Polish-French duo that, in our artistic work, combines musical skills with contemporary circus and physical theater.
We go by the name "Kasia&Milo" and both work as performers and instructors. Since 2018, we have collaborated on several artistic projects together in Norway, Scotland, Armenia, Poland, Serbia, and Hungary—sometimes as part of larger productions and other times with projects we've produced ourselves.
The performance is played by two performers.
All of the rigging and technical work during the performance is carried out by the two performers:
• Set-up time: 1 hour
• Dismantling time: 30 min
The entire performance takes place under an aerial acrobatics rig that can be set at two different heights and can therefore be easily adapted to different rooms:
3.65 meters high – 5.03m x 5.48m
5,5 meters high - 6.54m x 6.7m
The rig can be transported by car and by plane.
The things we need:
the stage lights,
music (a source of electricity, mixing table, speakers)
a regular table.
scenography on tour
high aerial rig
low aerial rig
