Synergy: The Planets

The Knights with Dance Heginbotham

Part of

The Planets is a lightly immersive music, dance, and theater event in which audience members and performers are all equally present and interwoven throughout the playing space. The Knights and Dance Heginbotham guide the audience through our local celestial environment. Focusing on each planet, Gustav Holst’s masterpiece propels us from the fiery worlds at the core of our solar system to the icy bodies slowly orbiting in the far distance. The culmination of this tour brings our eyes and ears to rest on the one planet Holst excluded from his composition: the pale blue dot.
