In June 2016, we invited the people of Macclesfield into a curious reality, as the strange story of La Lune unfolded over Barnaby Festival 2016. Commissioned by Barnaby Festival, La Lune called on the whole town of Macclesfield to come together, and fill the town with stars
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 everywhere, we told the story of an astronomer who brought the stars and the moon down to earth. For one short week Macclesfield was full of starlight, and the moon and stars rose back into the skies in a spectacular finale. Get a flavour of La Lune here.
