Based on real meteorological events, STARSONG is the story of twin stars, born in a beautiful nebula at the heart of the Milky Way. These two stars did everything together, close as can be. But when they stray too close to a black hole, one twin is caught in the black hole’s inescapable pull, and the other is flung into the universe, alone…

Through light and puppetry, STARSONG explores how deeply we care for the people we love, how painful isolation feels, and how together, we find a way to heal and hope.
