    This is a theatrical invitation to pause. To rest. To listen.

    A Crash Course in Cloudspotting asks you to connect with the subversive act of lying down.

    It's about public rest and acts of bravery we don't see. About scaling the distances and depths of human connection.

    A Crash Course in Cloudspotting is part verbatim theatre, part meditation on rest, gravity and connection.

    It’s a rare and intimate audio journey of fragile beauty, just for you.

    For this experience you will receive a handmade booklet in the post. This includes all you need to carve out a resting space.

    The experience is conceived as a break from the screen, and invitation to connect with a small audience of 21.

    Raquel Meseguer Zafe is a UK-based dance theatre practitioner. She acknowledges 'crip' as a tool in her artistic process, and 'rest' as a creative impulse.

    She is the artistic director of Unchartered Collective, a Lost Dog Associate Artist, and a Pervasive Media Studios Resident. Her work is supported by Unlimited and MAYK.

    Conceived by Raquel Meseguer Zafe. Devised in collaboration with artist and theatre designer Sophia Clist, composer and sound artist Jamie McCarthy, associate artist Laura Dannequin, artist Tom Metcalfe and sound designer Mark Webber.

    Commissioned by Unlimited. Produced by MAYK. Supported using public funds by Arts Council England.
