MAAS and the Moon

How do you get a rocket to the moon? You point the rocket at the moon and press the big red button, right? Most of us have a rather oversimplified view of space travel; it's not our fault, they made it look easy enough in Star Trek. Fortunately, the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences is not here to facepalm at our lack of knowledge. Instead, it's delved into the archives and hauled out a fascinating array of astronomical tools and space-related oddities for an exhibition at Riverside Theatres during Sydney Festival 2019.

From astrophotographs, Copernican gadgets and lunar-inspired ceramics, this is a collection designed to press home the complexities of galactic gallivanting. If you've just finished one of Aerialize's trapeze classes in the theatre's courtyard and you feel a little woozy, stick your head in the door and meander through MAAS and the Moon.

MAAS and the Moon is part of Sydney Festival's dramatic and diverse 2019 program. Check out the full lineup here.
