Ellen is a professional musician. She and Antony are madly in love and have been married for 5 weeks, 3 days and 3 hours when the unthinkable happens. Ellen is left with a heart-breaking decision to make – her life or her love.

Breath-taking aerial movement, live original music and interactive projection combine to tell a touching tale - part medical drama and part love story - all set in Ellen’s subconscious. It's the must-see event of 2017 and one that truly defies description!

The Cast 

'April is promising to be the coolest month, with the arrival of Out of This World... created by Mark Murphy whose skill and imagination lay behind the closing ceremony of Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games 2014. Melding together film, animation, text and aerial choreography, the piece takes us into the free-falling mind of a woman in a medically-induced coma - will she stay in that limbo, or come back to life? Stirling’s Macrobert Arts Centre is one of the commissioning bodies behind Murphy’s new production for his VTOL company, so it’s only fitting that the venue hosts the show’s premiere.' Mary Brennan, The Herald

With thanks to Beaconhurst School for providing rehearsal space for the development of this production. Their support was match funded thanks to an Arts and Business Scotland New Arts Sponsorship grant.
