Join us for adventures in space, online, and in theatres!

From Andover to the stars!

Our exhibition about the Andover Space Programme – our epic adventure co-created with Chapel Arts Studios, Andover Young Carers and the Picket Twenty Fillies WI, is now on display at Winchester Science Centre! You can visit on Saturdays and Sundays or during the school holidays. And if you can’t make it, then you can visit our website to watch Rebecca Kenyon’s short film telling the story of our amazing voyage from a town in Hampshire to the very edge of space…

Want to follow in the footsteps of Spayce McSpaceFace? Our game One Red Ballooon lets you fly to the stars on your iOS or Android device. You can download it here.

Clumsy Body Doubles at Camden People’s Theatre

We’re working with the brilliant Clumsy Bodies – DARE Festival veterans Oli Isaac and Jess Rahman-González – to support the latest performance of their show Clumsy Body Doubles at Camden People’s Theatre on 4th July. Last seen at DARE Festival 4 back in 2019, Clumsy Body Doubles follows Jess and Oli as they hire cisgender body doubles to tell their stories about being trans. What could go wrong?

“A critic told us that they enjoyed our personal stories about being trans, but didn’t like us as the performers of those stories. So (obviously) we hired cisgender doppelgängers to take over our lives – Scarlett Johansson style. But what happens when they take it too far?”

The Starting Blocks showcase also includes work from Frankie Thompson, Nick Blakeley and Tom Ryalls. Find out more.
