Planetarium is a multimedia project incorporating several artistic media - painting, photography, film, dance and music. At the centre of the project is a painting by the internationally-established Macedonian artist, Kiro Urdin. The painting, a canvas of 48 square metres, has been painted in different locations during a journey throughout the world, thus symbolically bringing the world together in one undivided unity. In 2002, choreographer Debbie Wilson joined with Urdin and Macedonian composer, Venko Serafimov to expand the Planetarium experience through a new medium - dance. The original Planetarium - a co-production with Macedonia premiered in Toronto, Canada in February 2003. The current version of the production premiered in Geneva, Switzerland in October 2005.
