How To Survive On The Moon

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Theatre
Victoria • SA Premiere

Welcome. You are the guest of a space-art crew originally scheduled to dock with a Qanta Earth-return vehicle on the light side of the moon. However, due to Lunar-Google Wi-Fi connectivity difficulties, your vehicle was forced to land deep in a North Terrace crater: some 200 Kilometres from the rendezvous point. During manual re-entry and landing, equipment aboard was damaged. Your host MOD. @artistastronaut knows the drill and leads the way, but needs your help. Your survival depends on reaching the rendezvous point, signalling the mother ship to 3D-print a shelter at SpaceBnB terminus until rescue arrives. 

How to Survive on the Moon is a playful, participatory performance combining elements of a NASA Workshop, an ESA Human Spaceflight Lesson, and the artist’s own astronaut training.
