MOONSEED at the Spur Battery opens to live performances from the MOONSEED Collective on both 21 and 22 August, 4pm-5pm each day. Beyond that, visitors are invited to explore the space during exhibition times from 23 August, 10am-5pm. Discover further live experimental performances from Lunatraktors and Minimus. See full programme details for individual days.

Long-term collaborators Luke Birch, Anna Braithwaite and Helen Lindon (all based in Kent, UK) joined forces with Canadian dance artists Olivia C. Davies and Daisy Thompson to research and develop new ways of collaborating remotely following the cycles of the moon as their guide.

MOONSEED is an art installation that synchronises simultaneous live performances from around the world with pre-recorded digital artefacts to create new rituals dedicated to the moon and its cycles. At a time when space travel has become the theme park ride of choice for oligarchs and the United States’ deregulated entrepreneurial activity threatens to strip the moon of her mineral assets, the MOONSEED Collective embark on an urgent attempt to reclaim the mystery, beauty and splendour of our lunar body.
