Keisha Thompson: Man On The Moon at STUN Studio at Z-arts, Manchester 16 — 20 October 2018 Tickets from £7.00 - 13.00 — Book now

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. Directed by Benji Reid, This truth-infused narrative sees Keisha 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 storytelling, Man On The Moon explores the impact that mental health can have on the family dynamic, particularly within the context of the Black British experience.

Prepare to jump from Manchester to the Moon as this story reaches for those answers that can often feel out of reach.
