Howl at the Moon by Tom Adams

  • 24 April 2015 7:30-9pm


Directed by Spymonkey’s Toby Park

It’s July 1969.

David Bowie has just released 'Space Oddity'.

The Apollo 11 Rocket is going to the moon.

On board are Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. Two of them are destined to be the most famous men on the planet. You are about to meet the third.

Michael Collins is on a mission all of his own.

Whilst Neil and Buzz muck about moonwalking, Michael has a serious job to do.

For 60 minutes, he will visit the dark side of the moon, out of radio contact with the rest of humanity. This gives him 60 minutes of utter solitude. 60 minutes to think about home. 60 minutes to examine the nature of existence.

And he is going to do it all through the medium of street dance. And some really catchy tunes.

Howl at the Moon is a virtuosic display of musicianship, dance and comedy. The space capsule is a beat making, bass shaking, electro funk machine and countdown is about to commence.

As heard on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’
