Beyond the Border Festival

2021

Full-length theatre work

90'

 

A cross-genre collaboration with renowned storytellers Daniel Morden and Hugh Lupton, 'Stars and their Consolations' explores the creation of many of the most prominent constellations in the night sky, interwoven with a unique and evocative electronic soundscape created by Sarah.  The work was premiered at Beyond the Border Festival 2021, in Mid-Wales, in two differing formats: one a traditional big-top tented staging, and the other using silent disco technology to retell the stories whilst the audience were encouraged to star gaze outside.
