Intergalactic Travel Bureau Show
7 - 9 June 2017, Lost Rivers Elephant, London
Announcing the Intergalactic Travel Bureau show, landing in London on 7, 8 and 9 June at Lost Rivers Elephant! The show will bring together artists, scientists, and community groups to experiment and explore space travel through theatre.
Get ready for lift off! Thanks to the support of the UK Space Agency and the Wellcome Trust, we’re scaling our popular Intergalactic Travel Bureau pop-up into a spectacular stage show.
Embark on the adventure of a lifetime to the final frontiers of space. Become intrepid explorers: journey to the moon, visit the best planetary destinations in our solar system, head at the speed of light to the outer edges of the galaxy, all before returning back home to Earth. Beware, travellers will encounter the physical, emotional, and psychological effects that occur in microgravity, and find out whether life really is better in space…
We’ve commissioned two cutting-edge artists, Empress Stah and Bishi, to create new work through collaborations with brilliant space scientists, Beth Healey, Zita Martins, Louisa Preston and Julia Attias, along with marvellous quantum physicist, Ben Allanach. Drawing on their research, Empress Stah will devise and perform a lunar aerial hoop solo, while Bishi will create a planetary multimedia performance and compose the full length soundtrack for the show.
In the lead up to the performance, we’ll be shaping the storyline of the show with local community groups, and sharing the creative process between the artists and scientists on our social channels. Follow us to go behind the scenes with our fantastic director, Chris Rolls.
Tickets for the show are available here!
