The man who flew into space from his apartment
Friday 14 August, 18:00 and 20:00
Booking is required for this event as spaces are limited.
An immersive slideshow inspired by an installation by Russian artist Ilya Kabakov. Award-winning writer and theatre maker, Michael Pinchbeck, invites a guest performer to perform in front of ten people at a time. They follow 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 gallery space, the journey of the man who flew into space from his apartment with that of the performer involved, taking a leap of faith and heading into the unknown. Commissioned by hÅb, Manchester and Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, The man who flew into space from his apartment will be presented at the Forest Fringe 2015.
