Michael Pinchbeck is an award-winning writer and theatre maker based in Nottingham, UK. His work has toured nationally and internationally and has been selected for the British Council’s Edinburgh Showcase three times.
The Man Who Flew into Space from His Apartment draws on notions of escape and makes a journey, like Russian artist Ilya Kabakov, between east and west, flying and falling, attempt and failure. It questions an understanding of space by relating outer space to the theatre space, the journey of the man who flew into space from his apartment with that of a guest performer involved, taking a leap of faith and heading into the unknown.
Take a leap into the unknown with this slideshow performance by writer and theatre maker Michael Pinchbeck. A guest performer follows surprise instructions fed through headphones in this story of a man suddenly expelled into the vacuum of space.
