Man on the Moon - Keisha Thompson
The award-winning Man on the Moon is a journey through space and time, fuelled by love, fear and Afro-futurism.
Written and Perfromed by Keisah Thompson and Directed by Benji Reid.
Keisha communicates with her reclusive dad through books, letters and symbols. But when the letters stop coming she is forced to venture into his world.
This truth-infused narrative sees the protagonist follow a trail of breadcrumbs that lead her to a number of check-points: cultural displacement, religious confusions, political paranoia, misplaced masculinity and more. With the use of poetry, looped sounds and story-telling, this piece explores the impact that mental health can have on the family dynamic, particularly within the context of the Black British experience.
