In the second half of the year, Michèle developed and wrote a new show to be rehearsed in 2017 and premiered in 2018, "She Dreams The Stars", featuring music by women composers. The show tells the story of a young woman on an incredible journey of discovery via music, dance, and audio-visual components.
