something happened on the way from mars
Something happened on the way from Mars
a site specific show in Futuro house - CSM
Curated by Pete Smithson
In the future: 2116
After catastrophic events during the previous century which scientists believed were due to climate change, Earth was abandoned and colonies established on other planets, the nearest of which was Mars.
In 2116 it was decided that an exploratory expedition would be sent to ascertain if the Earth’s atmosphere had recovered sufficiently to venture a permanent return.
Futuro finally landed on Earth, but on waking from space sleep the crew realised that " something happened on the way from Mars"
