Black Stars is a show about the possibility of finding a way where you least expect it, when all possibilities of hope for a better life seem exhausted. Black Stars therefore takes up a black luminosity which, instead of being negative, contains the possibility of a new, or at least renewed, matter.
This idea of renewal is embodied not only on the text, but also on the scenic forms that are used. Black Stars is a show about the pleasure of the make-believe and the virtue of the theatrical here and now; of the informal meeting with the audience, in a close relationship, looking for lucid and fruitful commitment.
Black Stars are two actresses telling stories about people discovering a sudden unknown brightness, a dark, different and rare luminosity, reopening the doors of adventure.
