The Birth of Stars is a bespoke digital light, sound and dance event created by Choreographer Rachel Palmer from The Dance Movement with artist Mary Branson, composer Mat Clark and animator Rosie Gunn. The work was commissioned by G Live, Guildford and performed on 11 – 12th October 2013 over 4 performances.

The cyclical process of a star being created and extinguished was brought to life in the studio space. A 35 minute performance staged as a metaphor for the cycle of human existence.

Experienced from the outside the building looking in, audiences watched as performers interacted with digital light projections, listening to an intimate 3D sound score on wireless headphones.
