Astrojet (2014) was an after-dark performance that commemorated Melbourne's forgotten Astrojet Space and Science Centre. Part bus tour, part audio guide, Astrojet took you on an eerily familiar expedition to a resurrected Space Centre and illuminated its ill-fated history. Paying homage to 70s sci-fi and defeated Space Age optimism, Astrojet memorialised failure and invited us to consider our own monumental disappointments. Part of Field Theory's Site is Set series and Blindside Gallery's Meet the Public Festival.
Technical production and projections: Ian Corcoran
Production management and dramaturgy: Molly Whelan, Anna Schoo, Lara Thoms and Field Theory
