Join this intergalactic star in a show that explores the love relationship between humans, music, and the planets. Pop, jazz, Venezuelan folk, and opera. Inspired by the ‘The Planets Suite’ by Gustav Holst and ‘The Man of Understanding’, a text by Franklin Jones (aka Adi Da Samraj), ARIAH brings you a collection of songs that will take you from the burning fire of hell into the gates of cosmic love.
The charismatic performer ARIAH LESTER quickly established himself internationally. With his clear countertenor, he guides his audience into a world where one reality almost imperceptibly transitions into another. In 2017 he won the Sabam Jongtheaterschrijfprijs at Theater Aan Zee and in 2019 he received a nomination for the BNG Bank Theaterprijs.
After THE GATE and VIAJERO DEL AMOR [A Lover's Journey], Love Songs for a Shooting Star is Lester's third performance under the wings of Productiehuis Theater Rotterdam in co-production with O. in the context of the new maker's subsidy from Fonds Podiumkunsten.
Original Music by ARIAH LESTER Performed and co-composed together with Marta Gonzalez & S'Yo Fang
