2020 would have been our 8th Edinburgh Fringe season of Monski Mouse's Baby Disco Dance Hall. We are so sad to not be dancing with you all this year!!
Professionally speaking, not coming to Edinburgh in 2020, or any of the other festivals and venues were were scheduled to appear at, has put a huge hole in our touring budget, putting at risk, future tours, when the time comes that it is safe to do so. Money raised in this campaign will go towards getting back on the road, when the time is right and in the short term, into creating online content for our audiences.

Monski Mouse's Baby Disco Dance Hall was created and launched in 2012 at the Adelaide Fringe in a sold out debut season, which unleashed a whirlwind of touring, starting with Edinburgh Fringe in August of the same year. Since then, the show has gone on to play across the UK and Australia. Produced and performed by Monski Mouse herself and employing a bunch of fabulous artists as her "Monski Mouse Dancers' in the show, the Baby Disco has become a 'Festival Favourite' for young families to introduce their young ones to the arts, music, dance and the joy of collective creativity. To date, our shows have been completely funded via ticket sales. We are so proud to have been able to make a show that has created to many beautiful moments of interaction, play, and sparking imaginations. With ever fibre we are committed to ensuring that we save the boogie for young audiences, and keep spreading the smiles, good times, a bonkers, bopping baby beats.

If you have come to the show before or wish to in the future, and you are able to, we would love any support you can send our way.
Thank you to the Edinburgh Fringe for initiating this crowdfunding campaign and for always putting the artists, the shows the make, and the audiences they serve first, in the way they run their festival. We are very proud to have been a part of the fabric of this festival, and can't wait to be there in person again!
Biggest love to all.
