Otherworldly Giants is a new original 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. It’s tale of motherhood, sisterhood, queer love, magic, ritual, and leadership in the midst of the apocalypse.
We began development for this work in early 2019, and aim to mount a full production in 2022. During our development period 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 production and set to be released in summer 2019, in tandem with the development of Otherworldly Giants, the musical. In this podcast hosted by Shaunga, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of ritual-based theatre; conversations & interviews with storytellers and real life superqueeros; TV show commentary nerding out on narrative theory and storytelling craft; astrological & ancestral love letters, and more.
