Adventure into the great unknown!

This Spring Break, you and your family are invited to embark on a fantastical online adventure with Interstellar Journey – reinvigorating live performance in a digital galaxy!

Featuring an award-winning creative crew that’s out of this world, HRH Anand Rajaram, Bruce Horak and Rebecca Northan will take turns directing each other in three different “digital expeditions” to discover what magic is possible in augmented reality – and they need your help!

Help us invent something new!

Whether your child would like to get involved or prefers to sit back and enjoy the ride, Interstellar Journey is a one-way ticket to pure fun! Once registered, you’ll receive an email with more details on ways to participate.

Real adventures, in real time, with real people on the other side of the screen!

“One of the great gifts of the internet is being able to transform yourself using avatars and augmented reality. Like with masks & puppets, it’s a really fun way to free your creative inner self by channeling through a character”
– HRH Anand Rajaram

What is thrilling to me about working online is that the performance space is accessible in a whole new way, to a much wider audience.”
– Bruce Horak

“Improvising with an audience member, or finding ways to incorporate offers made by multiple audience members in real time is thrilling – you never know where you’ll end up, which is what adventure is all about!”
 Rebecca Northan

PLEASE NOTE: This special online event is free. Interstellar Journey is a new experiment. Once the adventure is over – we’ll be looking for your feedback on the experience, so please don’t be shy about sharing your thoughts.
