This extraordinary ballet follows the journey of the last man into space, using contemporary choreography to interpret vast cosmic events, such as the stages of the evolution of a star, from a planetary nebula to the formation of a deadly black hole.
The last astronaut has left a dying earth in search of a new home. In a thrilling cascade of stunning characters, costumes and imagery, he witnesses the birth of a new star and finds himself on an alien world, populated by very alien creatures - one of which he forms a strong bond with.
