In humanity’s future, the connection between humans and artificial intelligence has gradually blurred into the realm of cybernetic organisms. Do any ghosts of humanity still remain?

A scientist with a single-minded obsession will do anything to save his son Jove, a feat he can only achieve by recreating humanity as it once was. Dr. Elias Crete is fighting a losing battle against time to save that which is most dear to him.

JUPITER’S GHOST is a new science fiction play drawing on themes of conservation, political morality and space exploration. Come and immerse yourself in this tumultuous journey of love, hope and identity.

The show is directed by Tani Gill, who has performed and directed dance shows and short films throughout the world, including King’s College in Cambridge, the Acropolis in Greece and Chennai, India. JUPITER’S GHOST is her first theatrical directorial debt in the UK.

JUPITER’S GHOST integrates elements of dance and movement in its exploration of the newly cloned Jupiter101 exploring her physicality. This is a speculative drama and not to be confused with a musical. 

The show is supported by Arts Council England, with its costumes having been dyed by artist and lecturer Nabil Ali, using 14th and 16th century dye recipes.

Dye, Myth, Nature and Climate

Arts Council England have funded a fourteen month long project with artist/lecturer Nabil Ali collaborating with Tani Gill among other contributors. Tani Gill Dance Company will be shooting a film at the Cambridge Botanical Gardens where Nabil Ali is an artist in residence. The film will be aired at the Botanical Gardens (Cambridge University) and Edinburgh Fringe Film in June 2024.
The film depicts the circularity of life, the audience can see how movement, colour and sound are all connected to nature. The plants depicted in the film will be used to dye the costumes in both the film and theatrical production of Jupiter’s Ghost. Emer Linehan is a professional ballet dancer who has trained at Brussels International Ballet school. She is playing the lead role of Jupiter101 alongside Maria Galanina. The film is a dream sequence taken from the theatrical performance, Jupiter’s Ghost, written and directed by Tani Gill.
The film is shot and edited by Underdog studios lead by animator and visual director Milan Medvec whilst The theatrical performance will be hosted by The Cockpit theatre in London for two nights: June 22nd (press night) and June 23rd 2024. We are hoping to take the show on tour later that year.
