Giant Leaps at Science and Industry Museum, Castlefield 21 — 30 October 2022 Entrance is free — Visit now

One of Manchester Science Festival‘s world premieres comes in the form of a fun-loving journey through the galaxy with acclaimed choreographer Corey Baker, who is on a mission to create the first dance in space with an out-of-this-world immersive experience called Giant Leaps.

Throw some shapes as you’re transported through the galaxy and see how your movements influence the journeys of stars and space dust.

This fun, playful experience has been specially commissioned for Manchester Science Festival and will support Corey’s ambition of working with the European Space Agency to understand how humans’ movements are impacted by different atmospheres, with the ultimate ambition of designing a dance for astronauts.
