About the Performance

January 22-24, 2024
The Chopin Theatre (mainstage)
1543 W. Division St.

An astronaut traveling 87,000 light years into space crash-lands on an uncharted planet, where she must resort to emergency measures to seek rescue. From the award-winning team Alex & Olmsted, elegant puppetry design meets joyful, meaningful storytelling. Live performance, shadow puppetry and marionettes shine to delightful effect. This is puppetry life support of the best kind – at just the right moment.
