Take a thrilling ride through 13.8 billion years of life, the universe and everything in it

Caernarfon, Derry-Londonderry, Hull, Luton, Paisley

About Us combines live shows and multimedia installations with animation, poetry, original music and live performance to explore our infinite connections to our planet, the wider cosmos and each other. The live show will transform buildings and landmarks in five towns and cities into a vast canvas featuring bespoke animations, cutting-edge projection mapping technology and a new score by composer Nitin Sawhney performed by local choirs. The outdoor installation will incorporate submissions from a UK-wide poetry and computer coding competition for children and young people run by our partner organisations The Poetry Society and Stemettes. About Us tours the UK from March to May 2022 and runs for a week in each location, with multimedia installations open throughout the day and multiple free performances every evening.

About us is presented as part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK, a celebration of creativity taking place across the UK in 2022, designed to reach millions and bring people together. It features free large-scale events, installations and globally accessible digital experiences in the UK’s most ambitious showcase of creative collaboration.
