Astronaut by Joe Wright at The Vault Festival

Astronaut by Joe WrightIn 2016 Dublin, Ireland a group of grass root activists occupied “The Apollo House” housing up to forty people during the Christmas period. What ensued brought a city to its feet. This Spoken-word multimedia theatre piece is inspired by that takeover.

We meet the astronaut on O’Connell St. He doesn’t have a home. He is looking for the last pieces of cardboard to fix his rocket ship and make his way to the stars.

Join him on his quest, as he confronts truths about modern-day Ireland, as well as reliving some truths of his own.
