STAR TOO - Is It Real?


STAR TOO is an experimental theatre project based in Dubai. They will be performing their latest production this weekend on 25th and 26th May at The Fridge . Their titles of their past four productions have been questions, like Who Did It? and Where is Home? Their latest production continues to ask questions - Is It Real?

The STAR TOO performers will be stretching their imagination, using only cloth and sticks to transform the environment and answer this question for themselves. 

 Is It Real? 

Combining a giant projector box, shadow puppet theatre and a 360 degree experience for the audience - this experimental theatre troupe is asking you to get ready to be boxed in to think out of it for their 5th production at The Fridge.


I've missed out on STAR TOO's last four productions, so hoping not to miss this one. Sounds like it will be an interesting experience.

STAR TOO - Who Did It

STAR TOO is an experimental theatre project based in Dubai. Following the success of their two previous productions "Where Is Home" and "What's The Time", they will be presenting their third production, "Who Did It" featuring a cabaret setting, a magic table and aerial art at The Fridge on 28th and 29th May.

According to The Fridge, "Don't be pulled back by the word experimental. STAR TOO productions are accessible and very entertaining!"

STAR TOO is Dubai’s first experimental theatre project that includes an elite group of performers creating original productions in the UAE and mastering their skills by working with a wide variety of artists in the local community. It is breaking ground at every possible turn, ultimately working towards a meaningful contribution to the present cultural landscape.

The aim of the project is to forge a legacy, tirelessly setting high standards of theatre practice in this region, fostering purity and articulation and highlights that acting is not about pretending but about convincing. STAR TOO bridges the gap between the arts in the community, inviting vocal specialists, movement experts, and published authors who live here and now. The group’s work offers local audiences innovative live shows  incorporating multi-media, created by talented actors dedicated to the art of theatre.
