​MZAZA: The Birth and Death of Stars

‘Mesmerising performance… an immediate sellout’ – Brisbane Festival

Take a step away from the everyday and contemplate our place in the universe to the sounds of some of Australia’s most uniquely diverse musicians and composers. World music favourites MZAZA have created a theatrical musical experience like no other in collaboration with some of Australia’s leading theatre-makers. The Birth and Death of Stars is a show that invites audiences to leave the daily world behind to contemplate our magical place in the universe.

Based on the album of the same name, the show draws inspiration from history’s philosophers and astronomers, leading us on a surreal voyage through the ether to explore what links us to each other and the world around us in ways that are poetic, moving and at times funny. Sitting comfortably between music and theatre, the show is brought to the stage by a powerful collaboration of creative minds featuring director Benjamin Knapton, writer Pauline Maudy, Finnish animator Laura Matikainen, and design consultant Alison Ross.

This production has received critical acclaim, premiering at Brisbane Festival in 2020 followed by a tour to some of Queensland’s leading venues. It is accompanied by a very popular community engagement workshop program.
