kind of speculative-fictional interstellar novel
It is the year 2094, a group of people is in space. They are on the way with their spaceship. Where to is uncertain. This journey into the open is the story of a few people and creatures who have left the earth. They travel alone with their memories of Earth. Their friendship and fascination for the “bigger-than-life” connects them as much as their longing to touch stars. Everything is possible: space and time travel, a coexistence with the more-than-human even levitation.
“Star Magnolia” The play begins where Octavia E. Butler’s science fiction novels “The Parable of The Sower (1993)” and “The Parable of The Talents” (1998) end: Starting from a dystopian world, a vision of a new world is formulated. The piece is speculative fabulation, in which the future tries to free itself from the abyss of a past, to take root somewhere or sometime among the stars.
