The Space Between Stars


by Christine Lesiak

SkirstAfire Logo

An uncommon adaptation of The Little Prince.

When we peer into the sky, we peer into the past.
An astronomer’s lecture derails as she encounters the memory of her precocious son. Told with projection, live actors and puppetry, this adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic story melds astronomy, cosmology, and mythology. It is intended for ages 13+.
