Starball: A Dreamy Musical Astronomy Show by John Kaufmann & Dan Dennis
Directed by Rachel Katz Carey
West of Lenin
Audience members play villagers in a dystopian future in which the global government, or World Regime, has ended the relationship between humanity and the stars. But two Astronomasons, the Conductor (Kaufmann) and the Proxy (Dennis), have rebelled, calling the villagers to a secret clearing for a creative ritual.
Starball is giddy and fun, but it also illustrates the anthropological side of cosmology: long before human beings invented rockets and space stations, they were seeing themselves in the stars.
