A mix of fact and fiction – an ode to science. A collage of stories about the infinity of space and the limits of photography and art at capturing such epic majesty. The play fictionalises the stories of Carl Sagan and his wife Annie Druyen, and their role in creating the “golden records” – pressed gold archives of songs, sounds, greetings, music, images and brainwaves that were sent on Voyager as a depiction of Earth.
Presented by Optic Nerve Performance Group & Malthouse Theatre. The production is part of the HELIUM Program.
