INFO

We Are Here is a music theater performance about the experience of space and time, relativity, infinity and the urge to discover. Almost fifty years after mission Apollo 11, Nineties Productions zooms in on the first moon landing and its big anti hero, Michael Collins.
In 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first people to set foot on the moon. Michael Collins does not. He stays behind in Space Craft Columbia and circles 14 times around the moon waiting for his colleagues to return to his ship. Although Collins has fallen
into oblivion, he is the first person to have the opportunity to ‘really’ view our solar system, the moon and the earth in total loneliness. Through the eyes of Collins and his perspective, Nineties Productions takes a closer look at the paradox of knowing more about life and the human beings on Earth that lack this overview perspective. Because what does this knowledge mean for our everyday life? Does this knowledge lead to more meaning or to the insight of our ultimate futility? We Are Here takes you to the end of the cosmos and challenges you to choose a new perspective.
