THE MAN WHO FLEW INTO SPACE FROM HIS APARTMENT

THE MAN WHO FLEW INTO SPACE FROM HIS APARTMENT
Monday 24th August 2015 – 5.15pm

The first thing to do if you ever find yourself suddenly expelled into the vacuum of space is exhale.

The T in T minus stands for test. This is a test. This is an immersive slideshow inspired by an installation by the Russian artist Ilya Kabakov. There is a guest performer. There is an audience of ten people. The guest performer follows instructions on headphones they have never heard before. The performance draws on notions of escape and makes a journey, like Kabakov, between east and west, flying and falling, attempt and failure. It questions an understanding of space by relating outer space to the theatre space, the journey of the man who flew into space from his apartment with that of the guest performer involved, taking a leap of faith and heading into the unknown.
