Moonlight on Store Street is a night-time street party to launch this year's Bloomsbury Festival and celebrate 50 years since the lunar landing.
For one night only, Moonlight on Store Street will transform the street into a moonlit stage to celebrate all things lunar, dazzling those of all ages as they bask in the presence of artist Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon!
The Building Centre will be open in the evening for visitors to explore exhibitions and see a unique performace staged in the gallery of A Way to Live.
A Way to Live is a short epilogue to a doomed relationship and an intimate snapshot of a partnership caught in a crucial moment of transition. Two former lovers meet to say goodbye as one readies to depart for off-world living. The piece explores the trials faced by two characters navigating love, work and ambition, as they seek to find their place in the world, even if it means leaving it. The piece will be performed between 6.15-9pm by RADA graduates Viviana Cabral and Olivier Van Den Hende. A Way to Live is written and directed by Dean Elliott also a RADA alumni.
Take some small steps or giant leaps on the street where you can join in with a Bollywood workshop with Arunima Kumar or try out tango with Antonio Riva, make and wear a moon hat, listen to the Festival’s moon inspired Store Street House Band and watch a new commissioned dance work by Subathra Subramanian working with Westminster Kingsway College students. Look out for artists of all types interacting with Museum of the Moon, or just lie back on the moon loungers and lift your eyes to revel in the presence of the Moon at very close quarters.
Store Street’s independent shops, cafes and businesses will open their doors to reveal an array of moon-related creative delights including performance, reflection and lunacy!
