The fantastical story of a man escaping to the Moon on board a giant gas balloon. Where is the limit of the (im)possible? Hans Pfaall embarks on a solitary voyage with no guarantee of return. Adapted from Edgar Allan Poe’s tale, this multimedia solo performance mixes physicality, video projection, ad hoc-composed score and steampunk-inspired costumes to create a fascinating portrait of perseverance and rebirth.
