Event Details

Space travel and robot waiters seem like an ideal world of the future, but not everything goes according to plan!

Stars in Our Eyes is a double bill of two humorous pieces demonstrating the power of imagination driving human invention.Star Show
Set off into the unknown with our pioneering astronaut, where every rattle of a tin can, a tangle of desktop wires and falling kitchen tiles represent the danger-filled trials and tribulations of venturing into space.With ingenious object theatre, Star Show recreates and reimagines historical and personal individual triumphs, filled with humour and poignancy.Love of Risk
A ballet for robot vacuum cleaners. A man is waiting to be served for a candle-lit dinner accompanied by romantic music. Here, the service is automated and managed by artificial intelligence with somewhat limited capacities. Robots move about randomly and come and go in the space, creating a hypnotic dance. As dinner service unfolds, chaos ensues—and an accident is never far away.Stars in Our Eyes is supported by Institut français.Photo Credit: Greg-BouchetPost-Show Dialogue
There will be a short dialogue with the artists at the end of each show.Check out An Introduction to Object Theatre (Workshop), by the same company, Compagnie Bakélite.
