Simon Barraclough - Sunspots
Duration: 65 minutes, no interval
Suitable for 14+
Is the Sun a god, a man, a woman, or simply a giant ball of hydrogen? Why does it tell fibs about its favourite painters? Is the Sun afraid of dying? Does it get depressed? And what does it really think about us, and the solar system it is bound to care for?
Sunspots is a poetic, musical and visual journey from the birth of the Sun, through its long and eventful life, towards its ultimate death. Simon Barraclough (Poet in Residence at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory) is your guide on a journey that mixes fact, fiction, horror, humour and joy, together with music by Oliver Barrett and Simon Barraclough and film by Jack Wake-Walker.
