A BEginner's Guide to the night sky




Join Albertine and Léo for A Beginner’s Guide to the Night Sky, a practical observational astronomy class that moves through music, memory, and magic to teach us about what we can see from our tiny place in the universe, while gently exploring the ways that love and grief are intertwined.

This project was aided in its early development by Two Planks and a Passion Theatre's 'You Are Here' playwriting residency, and is supported in its development by the Canada Council for the Arts.
