Event Details

Nelly Ben Hayoun / 2013 / UK / 66’

Sat 22 June / 14:30 / Cinema Tent


Join French designer Nelly Ben Hayoun on her mission to assemble the world’s first orchestra of space scientists. Blending space exploration and bassoons; planet-poking and bluegrass-playing spacecraft operators – the International Space Orchestra’s members are drawn from NASA, SETI and the International Space University. Together, they develop and perform Ground Control: An Opera in Space, a re-enactment of mission control during the Apollo 11 moon landing. The opera features music by Arthur Jeffes of Penguin Café, Damon Albarn, Bobby Womack, libretto by science fiction author Bruce Sterling and more.
