Laurie Anderson & Hsin-Chien Huang To the Moon

Date 31.01.2020
Time 12:00 AM
Venue The Mick Lally Theatre
The National Concert Hall, Dublin in association with Galway 2020.

To the Moon by Laurie Anderson and Hsin-Chien Huang is a 30-minute dreamlike immersive experience that takes us on our own lunar exploration.

Experience being shot out from earth, walk on the surface of the moon, glide through space debris, fly through DNA skeletons and be lifted up onto the side of a lunar mountain before being thrown off again. Set across a series of scenes including ‘Constellations’, which features life forms that are becoming extinct – a polar bear and the honey bee – To the Moon emphasises the transitory as opposed to the fixed. When the viewer looks at the constellations they evaporate in the same way that humans create and erase their worlds.
