On 15 December 1999 Gravitation Zero – Noordung Biomechanics, the first theatre performance in alternating-microgravity conditions was staged in a IL-76MDK flying laboratory in Russia.
The Scipion Nasice Sisters Theatre (Slovene: Gledališče sester Scipion Nasice) was founded on October 13, 1983, with a founding manifesto (The Sister Letter).
A week ago today, what has to be one of the most radical theater experiments of the 20th century--and it just barely made it--took place in the skies above Moscow. Slovenian director Dragan Zivadinov's Noordung Zero Gravity Biomechanical theater unfolded in a Russian cosmonaut training aircraft owned and operated by the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training facility, which is based in Star City, just outside Moscow. I managed to film the thing and cranked out the following text about it--which I thought might be of interest. Cheers, MB
