The Small Star Seminar is a genre-twisting performance like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Part concert, part self-help, part comedy, part avant-guard art, part movie, part musical theater: a singing motivational speaker urges people to give up their goals, stop reaching for the stars and to start looking for the stars within their own minds. The performance features optimistic songs about quitting, accepting one’s own limitations, the power of sitting quietly.
Throughout the performance, writer, director and actor Cory McAbee will address the theory of “Deep Astronomy” and answer questions from the audience.
This project has been featured and developed in part through the Sundance Film Festival, NY Film Festival, Lincoln Center Film Society, Reykjavik Film International Festival, 36th Stage Songs Review and Marfa Film Festival. All performances are being documented for use in an upcoming feature film, written and directed by Cory McAbee. Audience participation is welcome.
Cory McAbee is best known as writer, director, songwriter and composer for the award-winning feature films, The American Astronaut (nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, 2001) Stingray Sam (2009), Crazy and Thief (2012) and as singer/songwriter for the internationally acclaimed musical group The Billy Nayer Show.
