A visually stunning theatrical odyssey exploring space, time and our human condition, from internationally acclaimed theatre artist Thaddeus Phillips. In 1977, the Golden Record was launched on the Voyager probe in the hope of being discovered by alien life and showing them a visual and audible glimpse into life on Earth. Inflatable Space explores the impact of this – two NASA technicians of the Voyager satellite get lost in a universe of inflatables, vacuum cleaners, miniatures and microphones in this cinematic adventure. A playful and profound look at our culture, our dreams, our past, present and future.
Phillips is a fluid, shifting storyteller, something of a conjuror. As a piece of performance it is technically brilliant, dizzyingly so. ★★★★★ The Stage (on 17 Border Crossings)
