Join Holly and Ted on a fantastical adventure through time and space. Tracy and Val are dinosaurs from different cultures. Aoife is a female astronaut leading a crew of distrusting males. Sarah-Jane and Lou-Ann are two teenage girls just trying to survive Year 10.

Polaris explores the normalisation of hatred, toxic masculinity, and the violence of language through imagined worlds and beguiling soundscapes that the performers create live on stage.
