The Promenade of Galaxies

Participatory, promenade devised and performed by our flagship youth dance company, LYDC and a community cast.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landings, The Promenade of Galaxies questions the meaning of one of the most optimistic events of the 20th century. Presenting a multi-cultural perspective on the race to the moon, young people present their response to the Zambian 'Afronauts', Japanese moon folklore and why pioneering astronauts were dismissed as 'Spam in a Can.'


Incorporating youth dance and a community cast, The Promenade of Galaxies creates a mass participatory performance. 

Our performance incorporated inflatable planets and blimps, sound and light projection, along with a play session inside a space hedghog to fully immerse the audience in the spectacle:

15 minute performance from the youth dance comany
15 minute perfromace with the community cast
15 minute audience interaction with the Ludus Dance team
This created a 45 minute sequence which ran through the festival

We have made The Promenade of Galaxies available as a package, for your youth & community groups which can travel to light festivals around the country.
