It's with great saddness that we report Jeanne Robinson's passing on May 30th 2010. Jeanne wishes us to complete the Stardance adaptation and bring it to the screen. All updates will come via the Stardance Movie blog.
Thank you for your kind thoughts and support.
Stardance is a feature film based on the Hugo and Nebula award winning story by acclaimed science fiction author Spider Robinson and choreographer/author Jeanne Robinson.
Shara Drummond is a dancer and choreographer. She's talented, original and unique–but according to the powers that be she is too unique in physical stature to find a place in the hyper competitive world of professional dance. Deprived of a venue Shara endeavors to create a new genre of dance–in Zero Gravity. She "befriends" space industrialist Bryce Carrington - the man with the means to make it happen for her.
In her new space-station venue high above the earth she creates art that enraptures the world below, and captures the attention of an altogether different audience from beyond the stars.
Our film will be an author approved adaptation of the original award-winning novella that spawned the popular series of novels, Stardance (Dial Press 1979), Starseed (Ace Books 1991) and Starmind (Ace Books 1995).
We urge you to read the original stories; all three are available in a hardcover omnibus edition or through Blackstone Audio Books (as read by Spider Robinson.)
