"Captain’s Log, Stardate (whatever): A lone astronaut hurtles through the cosmos on a one-way mission to the edge of us. She’s looking for a light in the dark. The source of a signal."
Our Infinitely Secret September Show is a theatrical space odyssey that crosses time and space to ask ourselves the question ‘Are we really alone?’
We are making a highly theatrical and design rich show that mixes sci-fi and documentary material. Through our exploration of fact, fiction and the spaces in between, we will investigate issues of mental health, the stories people tell and the meanings behind them. We are beyond delighted to be premiering the show in Dublin September.
We are fortunate to be receiving some production and in-kind support from Corn Exchange Theatre Company, Mermaid Arts Centre and the Scene & Heard Festival. However, as we are not receiving Arts Council funding we are looking to our friends, family, peers and the wider community to help us with the remaining production costs.
We have a lot of ambition for this project. We plan to layer intimate and detailed physical performance and an innovative costume design that utilises inbuilt lighting elements with a soundscape that blends personal interviews, character voice-over, original music and sourced sounds from sci-fi movies and actual missions into space.
We want to provide wonder for our weary hearts. We want to explore what it means to be alone in the connective space of a darkened theatre. We want to find an antidote to silence; of all kinds. We want to go to the darkest place in the universe and spark up a light. But we can't do any of this without YOU.
