We are inviting the people of Macclesfield into a curious reality, as the strange story of La Lune unfolds over Barnaby Festival 2016. Commissioned by Barnaby Festival, La Lune will call on the whole town of Macclesfield to come together, and fill the town with stars. La Lune is Wild Rumpus’ response to Barnaby’s 2016 theme of ‘Space’.
Through an immersive theatrical adventure in Christ Church, a most unusual observatory on the Christ Church lawns, strange occurrences in Macclesfield schools, and stars and moons appearing just everwhere, we’ll be telling the story of an astronomer who has brought the stars and the moon down to earth. For one short week Macclesfield is full of starlight, but when he realises that he can’t send them back, the people of Macclesfield will have to work together to send them back into the sky where they belong.
