Facebook event:

Small Star Seminar is the first solo music project created by Cory McAbee. The performance of Small Star Seminar features a singing motivational speaker who urges people to give up their goals, stop reaching for the stars and to start looking for the stars within their own minds as a way to uncover a supernatural realm that hides within a world of over­encouraged underachievers. Throughout the performance McAbee will address the theory of “Deep Astronomy” and answer questions from the audience.

This project has been featured and developed in part through the Sundance Film Festival, NY Film Festival, Lincoln Center Film Society, Reykjavik Film International Festival, 36th Stage Songs Review (Wrocław, Poland) and Marfa Film Festival. All performances are being documented for use in an upcoming feature film, written and directed by Cory McAbee.

Audience participation is welcome.
