Space to Fly

Unlimited Theatre and Upswing

Circus, Digital, Theatre

Space to Fly is a new large-scale spectacular event, combining circus with theatre and augmented reality, that shines a light on modern human spaceflight.

A collaboration between two of the UK’s leading outdoor theatre and circus makers, Unlimited Theatre and Upswing, Space to Fly seeks to go beyond the well-trodden Moon Landings and ‘Race for Space’ narratives to uncover the hidden stories and experiences of women and people of colour who are increasingly our human representatives in space. By offering a glimpse into these hidden stories of space flight we will question humanity’s future in space, and the role women and people of colour will play in it.

Space To Fly is their first collaboration, bringing their significant experience together to create a large-scale, circus/theatre/augmented reality event for outdoor performance.
