Pop-Up Circus VII: The Story of the Moon
This will be an action-packed night at Rich Mix celebrating the 45th year anniversary of the moon landing.
There will be live animation from artists such as Manuel Fernandez, Amelie and Greg Genestine-Charlton, Jessica Jane Charleston and a plethora of amazing new music, including Rob Cope‘s Gods of Apollo, Mechanical Moon, and new works for the Pop-Up Circus Big Band (from the same people who brought you warped big band carols at X Marks the Spot).
Watch this space for more info soon!
