It’s 2050 and climate change is shaking the natural world. Now that the bird watchers can no longer watch, Maya’s home will never be the same again…

LEEDS 2023 and the award-winning National Youth Theatre are staging a series of breathtaking events against the stunning backdrop of RSPB St Aidan's Nature Park, in a once-in-a-generation experience for performers and audience alike.

Follow a cast of 160 performers on a quest through the site, exploring it across several beautiful locations as it is spectacularly animated with music, movement and projection like never before. Join us this September for a timely, urgent and hopeful piece that will showcase world class creative talent and acts as an epic call to action about the future of our planet.
