Beyond Man on the Moon: Afrofuturism and Poetry

Part of Man on the Moon

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

In a special addition to her solo show, Man on the Moon, poet and performer Keisha Thompson is going under the skin of her performance to illustrate what really goes into creating such a compelling artistic vision. Here she explores the way Afrofuturism takes the experience of being “othered” and turns it into something that is otherworldly. Set against the backdrop of the Chuck Gallery, which explores contemporary African art, you will explore concepts of alchemy, the Enneagram personality wheel, numerology and Ancient Egyptian philosophy.
