Measure for Measure


Alexis Forestier

Alexis Forestier explores the early days of the Russian space programme, against a backdrop of songs and post-punk music. A journey into an unknown side of history.

On a set that brings to mind both the archaic world of Russia’s steppes and an experimental lab, actors and musicians build machines and rocket prototypes in real time. The show takes us from the rural Russian towns of the tsarist era to outer space where Yuri Gagarin was the first human being to visit in 1961. Against a background of noise rock, it recounts how a utopian movement inspired the scientific programmes of the space conquest and the current transhumanist ideology.
