About Us

March - May 2022

About Us is a spectacular live show and multimedia installation celebrating our connections to everything around us – past, present and future.

Take a thrilling ride through 13.8 billion years of life, the universe and everything in it - from the Big Bang to the present day

A spectacular open-air experience exploring our infinite connections to our planet, the wider cosmos and each other

Everything is connected

Have you ever looked up in awe at the night sky and wondered how you’re linked to the stars beyond? About Us is the show for you: an outdoor celebration of our connections to everything around us – past, present and future.

About Us used cutting-edge projection mapping, animation, music, poetry and live performances to celebrate our place in the universe and the connections between us all. Created by 59 Productions, Stemettes and The Poetry Society with scientists and poets from across the UK, this epic show combined live performances and multimedia installations – and was projected at night, for free, on to the landmarks of town centres across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Thousands of people joined us to explore the magic and wonder of the everyday as we celebrated everything About Us.

Genuinely one of the most stunning things I've ever seen. Beautiful work
