Last Dream (On Earth)

 

A traveler stands on a beach in North Africa, with

a group of friends. Tonight, they will try it. Tonight

they are getting ready, for a journey to change

their lives. Here, we will never know their names.

 

Decades earlier, a young man is strapped into a

tiny sphere. He is ready for his mission: to become

the first Human Being in Outer Space. His name will

soon be known: his name is Yuri Gagarin.

 

As if out of nowhere, a musical dialogue starts.

Words are spoken, the story of the trip of a lifetime

emerges. It is a story of hope, dreams and beauty

and of sheer inhumanity.

 

Last Dream (On Earth) draws on accounts of those

who risk their lives for a distant dream. It explores

journeys beyond the imaginable, and quests to find

a better future in faraway places.

 

Interweaving a live music score and soundtrack –

created by sound designer Matt Padden, musicians

Gameli Tordzro from Ghana and Tyler Collins from

Alaska, and performers Ryan Gerald, Mercy Ojelade

and Adura Onashile, audiences will experience an

immersive sound world on headphones, performed

on stage in front of them.
