A little girl who has lost her mother tries to contact her through the stars.


A curious little girl, Cielo, lost her mother as a toddler but still hopes to be able to communicate with her. Clara, a friend of the family from somewhere unknown, ‘appears’ to be able to channel different kinds of information about music and the universe. Clara encourages and challenges Cielo to go on a journey to the stars, with the aim of piquing her interest in integrated learning (science and the arts) to provide answers to her questions. On her journey, Cielo unexpectedly manages to reconnect with the spirit of her mother.

Malamute Teatro

The company

An emphasis on musical theater for all the family

This group was formed in 2019 to make certain issues and content from early childhood visible. It is made up of Manuela Oyarzún (playwright), Alejandro Miranda (composer), Omar Morán (theater director) and Isidora Khamis (producer). They also play other roles inside the company, since it is set up as a society to bring together artists and people from different disciplines to develop different projects. Aimed at encouraging learning and critical reflection among children and their families, the company creates tools and complementary activities to help popularize the content and values they deal with in their plays.

-Its content is specially designed for children (although it can be enjoyed by the whole family), exploring topics that are related to science in education, brought together through different artistic mediums (songs, audiovisuals, music, theater) into a single integrated piece. The solar system and its characteristics, birth, the evolution and death of stars, the mystery of black holes, and how light travels are some of the topics it deals with, as well as the importance of valuing our land as our planet’s natural laboratory, where we can stargaze and carry out scientific research. The play also intends to highlight emotional ties as the driving force behind learning and human development.

-Its hybrid format places it somewhere between a play and a musical. It blurs the lines between disciplines and goes beyond the definition of conventional musical theater, preferring a live theatrical concert format instead. Its novel script involved a high level of scientific research to create the words and dialogue, framed by an expansive auditory experience and musical score. It also references pop music and videos through the play’s characters. The set, costume, and lighting design meticulously deal with and frame the narrative with its visual projections of the universe, creating a calculated dialogue between art, music, and science.

Theatrical concert: This is defined as a show where poems, a recital or texts that are not necessarily dramatic intervene between the music, as opposed to what happens in an opera or musical.
