On Christmas Eve 1968, the astronauts of the Apollo 8 mission took a picture of the Earth, dubbed "Earthrise,” and changed the world. It gave humanity a new perspective on our planet’s fragility and isolation in the universe. But now, 49 years later, the image of Earthrise appears unimpressive. Using puppetry, movement and design elements, this piece seeks to reawaken the sense of wonderment and hope that Earthrise initially inspired.
