The award-winning Man on the Moon journeys through space and time, fueled by love, fear and Afrofuturism.  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.  Using poetry , looped sounds and story-telling, this piece explores the impact of mental health on family dynamics. Prepare to jump from Manchester to the Moon as this story reaches for those answers that can often feel out of reach.
