At the end of the 1960S the whole world watched with awe as 2 tiny figures walked
on the surface of another world! It was a moment that united people in global awareness;
humanity witnessing a common goal; to reach for the stars! Seldom has such a moment
of global unification been witnessed since those lunar landings decades ago! This
performance piece was produced for the 40th anniversary of the original moon landings

The Theme taken from the original performance programme:
“Figure of Speech’ have taken the humanitarian significance of the project Apollo
suggesting humanity was given a ‘key’ that day of the 1st lunar landing to become
one with the Gods and witness the dawning of our present age by imagining what lies
beyond....July 20th 1969 was a moment when the moon opened up to show the significance
of our universe of what lies within and beyond.....It was an event in which we could
all celebrate the gift of universal consciousness. It was the opening of a gateway
to the stars.......
Apollo’ is also ‘Figure of Speech’s’ tribute to the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11’s
landing on July 20th 1969.....
Using imagery, animation, soundscapes and puppetry ‘Apollo’ is an atmospheric piece
that abandons narrative in search of a complete sensory experience that feeds the
subconscious normally associated with dreaming and dreams......
So sit back and enjoy! Immerse yourself in eerie alien soundscapes, colourful projections
and puppetry and let ‘Apollo’ take you on its own unique journey to the moon and
The show was limited to 2 very special performances.
