In 2501, on Planet Earth, lives Glittery Shiny, a human being totally free from the cliches of the gender binary dictatorship. Heirs of the largest known diamond, the Pink Star, they are murdered when running away to another galaxy, towards Shiralea VI. Who killed the freest person who ever existed? The show seeks to reconstruct their trajectory in order to unravel the enigma of their death.
The play, which won awards in Brazil, is staged on the Zoom platform, with aesthetic references from the geek, cartoon and anime universe. On it 22 artists will act directly from their homes, in cities spread across Brazil.
Written by Ivam Cabral and Rodolfo García Vázquez, the text aproaches the post-family relationships with gender issues and Queer theory, based on theoretical texts by Judith Butler and Paul B. Preciado, among others.
