A traveller stands on a beach in Morocco with a group of friends. Tonight, they are getting ready for a journey to change their lives. Decades earlier, a young man is getting strapped into a tiny sphere, ready for his mission: to become the first Human in Outer Space.

As if out of nowhere, a musical dialogue starts. Words are spoken, the story of the trip of a lifetime emerges. It is a story of hope, dreams and beauty and of sheer inhumanity.

Last Dream (On Earth) draws on accounts of those who risk their lives for a distant dream. It explores journeys beyond the imaginable, and quests to find a better future in faraway places.

Interweaving a live music score and soundtrack, audiences will experience an immersive sound world on headphones, performed on stage in front of them.
