Commissioned by Norwich Theatre, supported by Jacksons Lane and Exeter Phoenix

Inspired by the Cosmos Archeology project at EPFL, Space Junk  tells the story of a space suit pushed out into space on an ephemeral orbit of the earth with a radio transmitter, known as SuitSat.

 

Floating through space it becomes a humanoid piece of space junk. On earth, Jocelyn, our human protagonist has just been through a heart wrenching divorce.

 

Through the radio transmitter they communicate and form a friendship. On stage we see a life size puppeteered space suit, and our protagonist is a dance and aerial artist. The narrative is audio. 

 

With over 100 million pieces of space junk orbiting the planet, Space Junk tells a story of love, loss, new frontiers, the destructive power of human carelessness and our constructive capacity for hope and compassion.
