Laika by Aliya Gilmore

20 - 24 June 2023, 7.30 pm


A thousand miles above the mighty USSR.

Last recorded transmission from the burning Sputnik 2.

'She melts you know. The snowchild. She melts...'

Laika is trapped in a cardboard box, hurtling at 18,000mph into the unknown perils of space. But she isn't alone - the walls bend as she fills her square world with stories of wondrous planets made of fire, smoke and ash. Featuring live music, physical theatre and cutting-edge tech, Gilmore's story takes us on the final hours of Laika's infamous voyage, celebrating the soul who was the first to dance among the stars.
