About Super Human Heroes

Captain Sunshine is not living up to his name! This Super Human Hero is not feeling super. Where’s the all action superhero? Where’s the run a hundred miles with a smile? We miss his sunshine, his light; we miss feeling that everything is going to be alright.

Captain Sunshine is overwhelmed by the challenges of the day. He’s tired of being sunny – being good, funny, loving, smart – tired of playing the part. Who will save Captain Sunshine, if he cannot save himself? What does it mean to be a modern day Super Human Hero?

A comical and musical dance with darkness, exploring the ways we are, fail and try to be super human heroes. There will be singing, there will be silence. We can’t be heroes all the time. It’s ok to be human.

Super Human Heroes is commissioned by Imaginate and supported through the Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund.

Perfect for children aged 8-12.

Running time: 50 minutes, no interval

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Super Human Heroes are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
