An inspiring puppetry-led story of discovery and connection for young people 7+
Asmin, a newly-arrived Turkish refugee is struggling with remote learning when she meets Victorian-era mathematician Ada Lovelace. Together, connected across timeframes, they find commonality in numbers and philosophies. In this imagined place we explore how far we have come in education rights for girls, how far we have to go, and the world-altering shifts that occur when we empower girls to reach their full potential.
Made in collaboration with math teacher and Turkish refugee, Bilge Aslan, the story combines the real-life experiences of girls worldwide who have been denied an education with the story of Ada Lovelace and her world-altering inventions. It’s aninspiring new adventure told through the beautiful magical realism for which Lemony S Puppet Theatre are renowned.
