Access information

Fifty years after man first landed on the Moon, Laurie Anderson flew us all there with this new work, developed with fellow artist Hsin-Chien Huang. Presented in the intimate Studio at the Royal Exchange Theatre, To the Moon had two parts: an ambitious, dreamlike VR experience that takes us on our own lunar exploration, and an accompanying installation featuring film, images and music. Created as part of Anderson’s MIF19 residency, To the Moon is a special opportunity exploring the ideas and inventions of this singularly brilliant American artist ahead of the new work she’ll be premiering and presenting at The Factory, the future home of MIF.

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival. To the Moon VR experience commissioned by The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark; The National Culture and Arts Foundation, Taipei, Taiwan; and National Taiwan Normal University.
