Join us for an extra special WORD! celebrating Black History Month and 50 years since the first Moon Landing… ’Man on the Moon’ is an award-winning journey through space
and time fuelled by love, fear and Afro-futurism. With poetry, looped sounds and storytelling, this piece explores the impact that mental health can have on the family dynamic, particularly within the
context of the Black British experience. Directed by the renowned Benji Reid and written and performed by award winning, Keisha Thompson - prepare to jump from here to the Moon as this story reaches for those answers that can often feel out of reach.
