In 1969 the Chimp Cosmonaut Boris 504 was sent in a mission to the moon. He never came back… His last communication was from the moon surface on the 7th of July of 1969.
Cause of Death:
Reportedly died on the lunar surface aboard Luna 15, surviving for a time after the landing…

Miguel Neto and Rodrigo Carvalho imagines an unprecedented combination of music and light around three acts – the show opens on Boris’ cosmic roaming; soon after, the duo structures through music the wormhole where he got trapped before jumping chaotically between multiple universes. Finally, the show encloses on a fantasy: Boris the cosmonaut chimp is well alive since he found the meaning of passing from universe to universe, not time. Imagined as an immersive voyage, Multiverse also flirts with fiction and reality while testing reactions between audio and image.
