Otherworldly Giants is a new musical created by astrologer & storyteller, Shaunga Tagore. In this story, the five outer planets and their astrological archetypes, Pluto, Jupiter, Neptune, Saturn & Uranus, come to life as everyday heroes in a parallel universe. It’s tale of motherhood, sisterhood, queer love, magic, ritual, and leadership in the midst of the apocalypse.
We began development in 2018, and aim to mount a full production in 2023. We’re currently in our character development and world building phase, during which you can look forward to catching a number of workshop presentations and explorations, both online and in the city of tkaronto (Toronto), digging into the characters’ origin stories, juicy relationship dynamics, traumas, heartaches, desires, fears and superqueero powers.
This is our way of introducing you to these beloved characters and the world in which they live – a world which encompasses parallel dimensions, multiple realities, time travel, and one life-changing secret.
Otherworldly Giants, the podcast is currently in pre-production and set to be released in fall/winter 2019, in tandem with the development of Otherworldly Giants, the musical. This podcast hosted by Shaunga is a journey into the makings of astrological-ancestral ritual theatre, conversations with QTBIPOC* artists, and narrative analysis of beloved TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and more.
*QTBIPOC = queer, trans, Black, Indigenous, people of colour
