♦The Object of Constellations♦
The Object of Constellations
By Christine Lesiak
When we peer into the sky, we peer into our past.
Astronomy, cosmology, and mythology coalesce in this uncommon adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic novella, The Little Prince, intended for adult audiences.
Part theatre, part installation art, The Object of Constellations is a site-specific performance.
Premiering April 2016 at the University of Alberta’s astronomical observatory. Created and performed in partial fulfillment of Christine Lesiak’s Master of Fine Arts Theatre Practice thesis, The University of Alberta.
