At The Request Of Carl Sagan
"The highlight was undoubtedly At the request of Carl Sagan, an improvised tour of space craftily composed by contemporary performers Applespiel… if you have the remotest interest in the Final Frontier, or perhaps just a penchant for obscure theatricals, this tour is highly recommended"
Tabi Jackson Gee, Melbourne Arts Club
Applespiel believe that we should commit ourselves to achieving the goal, before the the decade is out, of sending someone to the stars and returning them safely to the earth. No single space-related arts project will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space-based theatre, and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish.
Take a journey into the known and unknown. An interactive audio adventure, led through a reimagined gallery space by a real* astronaut. Audience undertake individual journeys of reflection, creativity and imagination before returning to earth and sharing their discoveries.
At The Request Of Carl Sagan was developed for Next Wave Festival 2012, as part of special international project "Wake Up And Watch The Sun Rise: 500 Methods For A New Beginning".
