Elemental has had sell out shows in Melbourne, Bendigo and Goa, India. It was shown in Greenwich as part of the ANZ Literary Festival, Birmingham and Winchester in May and June 2015. It was also shown at the Central European Fulldome Festival Brno 13–14 April 2015.

Elemental is a unique exploration of science, mind and the universe showcased under the spectacular dome theatre of the planetarium. Poets, musicians, sound and video artists – and world renowned science writer John Gribbin– have collaborated to present the world of the most literary, dazzling and passionate stars.

For centuries, poets have looked to the skies and attempted to scribble meaning into the galaxies. The novelist Peter de Vries once wrote, 'The universe is like a safe to which there is a combination, but the combination is locked up in the safe.' What if we had a key, even if only for a moment? What if we could measure, in words, what we have only imagined? Einstein took the view, 'the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.' What if he is right?

The artists involved in this show explore four different theories of the beginnings of the universe: The Big Bang, The Theory of Everything, Dark Matter and M Theory. Are these the lost poetic lectures of the beginning of time?

The show has many exciting components: Legendary UK experimental musicians Nurse with Wound have contributed a new piece commissioned especially for Elemental, based on the theory that the resonant frequency of the Big Bang was F#. The memorable voice of the late Dr Carl Sagan – the writer and creator of the award-winning series Cosmos – has been on loan for one of the works. Emmy award winning Drew Berry has kindly given us his DNA animation to use in the beautiful dome...

Artists include: Alicia Sometimes, Emilie Zoey Baker, Sean M Whelan, Ryan Van Winkle, Ai Yamamoto, Nat Bates, Alex Scott, Dan Gorman, Andrew Watson, Chris Nelms, Claire Fischer...
