The Disappearing


 A Story About Illusions

“The Disappearing” is the first season of Spacetime Diaries. It’s an eight episode musical adventure that follows a disgruntled tech worker as she reckons with apocalyptic human disappearances. She finds herself in the distant future, where two cultures clash on a remote planet for the fate of humanity.

Much of this story was inspired by the many enormous changes we witnessed in 2020. Major themes include humanity’s role in its environment, governance in a time of misinformation, and technology’s responsibility to the public good.

Recorded remotely among friends during the 2020 pandemic, this season involved the hard work of dozens of talented artists across New York and the West Coast. The following credits are listed in order of appearance:
