Inner Galactic | 2015
An Odyssey of the Heart
Inner Galactic is an immersive dance performance incorporating, music, spoken word, and theater as well as video, costume, light and visual design. This adventurous show uses outer space as a metaphor for the vast and complex inner workings of the heart. Inspired by space travel, the writing of Carl Sagan, the life cycle of stars and a general love of sci-fi/fantasy story-telling, Inner Galactic is a wild ride through joy, humor and heartbreak, exploring how we are truly "made of star stuff".
