A COMPILATION OF BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE AND IDEAS THAT WENT INTO OUR COLLABORATION WITH CHOREOGRAPHER AND PERFORMER HEMABHARATHY PALANI
Between 2017 and 2019 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. The Vyomanaut offers a glimpse of our working collaboration with Hema filmed over those three years.
