We The Curious
Anchor Road, Bristol, BS1 5DB
Sound World and the planetarium team at We The Curious (WTC), Bristol have created a captivating new show, marking the 50th anniversary of the first manned flight to the moon and exploring the future of space travel.
The show will feature five wonderful, specially commissioned string quartets (by leading composers Litha Efthymiou, Sadie Harrison, Julian Leeks, Michael Ellison and Emmy award winner Richard Blackford) which will be heard alongside five astronomical journeys taking the audience from the observations of ancient stargazers, through the excitement of the 1969 mission to the farthest reaches of the Universe; revealing the beauty of the cosmos and our place within it. These stunning, bespoke 3D visuals have been created by WTC’s Anna Henley.
