This presentation was designed to be performed for a planetarium, combining theater,improvisation, original music cosmological inquiries and the exploration of human consciousness into a performance that will challenge its audience to deepen their understanding of the universe and its inhabitants and hopefully, reawaken their wonder for the sky. Written by John Kaufmann and Dan Dennis ( who also perform) and directed by Rachel Katz Carey, “Starball” invites audience members to forge a visceral connection to the night sky using their own thoughts, concepts and dreams as the vehicle for their journey.

This is a special event, allowing the audience to spend some time in America’s first Planetarium to be educated and entertained and to open their eyes to more than we can see, day to day.
