A mother’s hope, a woman’s grief – in a world of wondrous stars.
Pandi’s two children have been missing for twenty years. Kaz thinks she knows where to find them. This story examines grief, longing, trust and hope. As the Cassini Space Mission slides into the rings of Saturn, two women down here on earth try to piece together the disjointed fragments of their lives. They are out with lanterns looking for themselves. This funny, thoughtful, poignant new work incorporates text, movement and image in a hybrid tale of love.
‘Writer Christine Davey infuses clever humour into this powerful story of grief, loss, and hope, and proves herself once again to be a phenomenal playwright. This story is about fathers, mothers, daughters, friends, destruction, reconstruction, birth, death, and every liminal space between.’
