This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
A traveller stands on a beach in North Africa, with a group of friends. Tonight, they will try it. Tonight they are getting ready, for a journey to change their lives. Here, we will never know their names.
Decades earlier, a young man is strapped into a tiny sphere. He is ready for his mission: to become the first Human Being in Outer Space. His name will soon be known: his name is Yuri Gagarin.
As if out of nowhere, a musical dialogue starts. Words are spoken, the story of the trip of a lifetime emerges. It is a story of hope, dreams and beauty and of sheer inhumanity.
Last Dream (On Earth) draws on accounts of those who risk their lives for a distant dream. It explores journeys beyond the imaginable, and quests to find a better future in faraway places.
Interweaving a live music score and soundtrack - created by sound designer Matt Padden, musicians Gameli Tordzro from Ghana and Tyler Collins from Alaska, and performers Ryan Gerald, Mercy Ojelade and Adura Onashile, audiences will experience an immersive sound world on headphones, performed on stage in front of them.
