In 1577, before the invention of the telescope, most people still believe that the sun goes round the earth. Tycho Brahe, eccentric astrologist/alchemist/cosmologist with a prosthetic nose for every occasion, witnesses the appearance of a new and brilliant star in the sky.
In his observatory in the Castle of Uraniborg, Tycho invents amazing cosmological theories with his friend Jeppe, a clairvoyant dwarf, and his drunken pet moose. Join Tycho, Jeppe and Erik the moose for a whistlestop tour through Renaissance astrology - if Erik can stop crashing into the astrological instruments...
A funny and light-hearted look at one of science's forgotten figures, told with table top and shadow puppetry and projection art.
