SPACE PANORAMA

Andrew Dawson

 

"Dawson has an astonishingly eloquent physical presence."

The Observer

Space Panorama is an utterly hypnotic solo recreation of the Apollo 11 moon landing, using only Dawson’s hands, to create a constantly entrancing documentary of the entire mission.

Accompanied by Shostakovich’s 10th symphony and a dramatic, lively narration Dawson takes us from Houston to the moon and returns us safely to earth, conveying the colossal distances and the risks involved simply through the deftness skilled movement in his hands.

Dawson has performed Space Panorama, which he created in 1987, at theatres and festivals throughout the world from an astronaut reunion dinner in Houston that included Buzz Aldrin and John Young including the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing at the Kennedy Centre to the Intrepid Air and Space museum (under the wing of the shuttle) in New York.

"It must be seen, if only for the
mobility of Dawson's hands...great fun."

The Guardian

"An outstanding presentation.”

 John Young, Commander of the first space shuttle
