11 years old Mana from the war-torn Red-Yellow planet is forced to catch a shooting star to seek refuge somewhere else. In a long planet-to-planet journey, Mana strives for her survival, will she ever arrive to the beautiful blue planet?
With a terrific team of creatives (Ben Samuels, Irina Shengelia, Pablo Fernandez Baz, Adam Fuller and Angie Pena Arenas), I am writing and performing a coming of age darkly comic adventure overflowing with poetry, strange creatures and pumpkin-headed soldiers. As an artist, I also strive for survival, will I ever reach our targets?
