Preparations have begun for the Global Science Opera’s production in 2017, “Moon Village”! The science opera will be performed around the world and streamed online: A year-long creative inquiry shared by schools, universities and art institutions in 25 countries. It will communicate the process, science and technology of the European Space Agency’s Moon Village. In March, members and students of the EU Erasmus+ “SPACE” project will gather at the European Space Agency’s Technology Center (ESTEC) in Holland to receive inspiration, and to plan the performance of the Dutch GSO team at ESTEC during the opera premier in December. “Moon Village” will be a cooperation with a network of institutions and these projects:
- Flagship Initiative of the European Commission’s Horizons 2020 Project CREATIONS.
- The European Commission’s Erasmus+ project SPACE.
- The Norwegian Research Council’s project iSCOPE.
