Project Planetaria in the LJP Without Walls Festival

Project Planetaria will be presenting our new work, Our Star Will Die Alone, in two performances at the La Jolla Playhouse Without Walls Festival, October 4-5 at 10:30pm. The site-specific piece will explore what it means to live the life of a star through a participatory performance, integrating data-driven elements that our rooted in our scientific understanding of stellar astrophysics. Audience members will witness the birth of our star, explore its fusion through hand-held custom electronic devices (“Project Planetaria Devices”) and listen to its chaotic, post-main sequence death throes with a heavy metal score based on stellar evolutionary calculations. Through sound, light, projection, and a death metal band, this performance will articulate the productive and destructive aspects of our primary source of light and energy.

Tickets ($15) can be purchased at Festival website: http://www.lajollaplayhouse.org/wowfestival/productions/star
