Planet WOW: Alien Encounter

Planet WOW: Alien Encounter

By Way Out West

Planet WOW: Alien Encounter is a multimedia poem for an alien visit to Earth. Beginning with a collaborative poem, the Way Out West artists have drawn, performed, vocalised, animated and made music in response to welcoming and showing aliens around planet Earth. The piece is a gesture of care and goodwill to others, and alerts us to the challenges of our planet in the face of climate change.
