THE VYOMANAUT

(2019)

A COMPILATION OF BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE AND IDEAS THAT WENT INTO OUR COLLABORATION WITH CHOREOGRAPHER AND PERFORMER HEMABHARATHY PALANI

Between 2016 and 2018 R&D Studio began creating on a project echoing the new space race to the Moon. We saw the rush by nation states and private companies to revalue the resources on the moon as a metaphor for similar forces that were driving social changes closer to home. Filmed in London and Bangalore we worked alongside dancer Hemabharathy Palani and aeronautical engineers based at TeamIndus to draw out personal stories in the urban environment.
