The Galaxy Language is a science fiction adventure presented as a mythic journey that the audience can join to discover an extraordinary language-- a language of images and musical rhythms that helps you hold onto your spirit, to what you love, no matter what happens. This play is based on a story by Kara Bennett. In the OpenSim live theater performance, avatar actors will play the parts of Earth people and visiting Extraterrestrials who are helping the Earth people explore problem-solving strategies for learning to communicate with each other without prejudice and violence. Besides offering an entertaining experience, this quest is part of a global effort to engage people in learning ways of creating characters, in both fiction and real life, who respect human rights.
