THE ASTRONAUT



Take a close look at the film footage of the Apollo missions.
What do you see?


- Astronauts, playing.


There is a scene in Stanley Kubrick’s film "2001", where a pen slowly floats across the screen. Fascinated by this scene and the distinct aesthetics of the Apollo missions, Luis Carr explored methods to visualize such images on earth.

For a short moment in everyday life, he creates his own universe fusing mime, dance, improvisation and magic. In this interactive performance for both street and theatre, he visually plays with time, space, and gravity in front of a live audience in an amusing way never seen before.
