living through change (2007-11)

exploring cosmos

A commission for Nottingham Trent University to creatively document the 'Cosmos' project, a research led arts and science collaboration between Nottingham Trent University and Dragon Breath Theatre.

18 months of research and development explored the teaching of science and basic astronomy to early years learners through storytelling, puppetry, dance, multimedia and performance to culminate in a series of participatory performances at the Waverley Studio Theatre, Nottingham and Curve, Leicester.

Cosmos was written by Peter Rumney and directed by Adel Al-Salloum. The project was commissioned by Curve for The Spark Children's Festival 2009, International Year of Astronomy, and National Science and Engineering Week 2009.

The version of 'exploring cosmos' presented here is a 4 minute summary of the full length 50 minute film.
