The Declaration of Love Project is an anthology of 11 short audio pieces written by North Carolina playwrights all inspired by the same writing prompt — “declaration of love.”
Episode 10, written by Aurelia Belfield is titled Constellation.
Love. How do we know when we’ve found it? Does it hit us like a meteor speeding through space? Is it there and gone like a once in a lifetime comet? Or is it so many tiny, shining moments against the night sky of our lives, quietly connecting to form a big, beautiful picture? Join Margot and Ravi while they find out in this romcom about friends, lovers, and the finest 90s R&B hits.
Declaration of Love is an Artist Soapbox production, co-produced by Aurelia Belfield and Tamara Kissane, and sound designed by David Hill.
Constellation was written by Aurelia Belfield
Directed by Aurelia Belfield

L-R: Aurelia Belfield, AhDream Smith, Lamont Reed
Aurelia Belfield (Playwright, Constellation): Aurelia is a creative multi-hyphenate living in NC. The hyphens include: music supervisor, as well as screen and stage performer, writer, and producer. In Declaration Of Love you will see her as producer, director, playwright (Constellation), and actor (Rita, Game On). She has a passion for audio dramas and is proud to bring you this anthology alongside her co-producer Tamara Kissane, as well as the full length audio drama The New Colossus, both of which can be found on your podcast platform of choice.
AhDream Smith (Actor, Constellation): AhDream is a multi-disciplinary artist who is always exploring new ways to express herself. Born in the Chicago suburbs and raised in the blues capital of Memphis, the blood memory pulsing through her veins sings of the Great Migration while her imagination wanders into the dimensions of Afro-futurism; a world unrelated to this one. Previously, a New York based actor, she is now training to receive her Masters of Fine Arts at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill’s Professional Actor Training Program and is also a resident actor at Playmakers Reparatory Company.
She attained her Bachelor of Arts from Wesleyan University majoring in American Studies, concentrating in Race and Ethnic Studies. AhDream plays Margot in Constellation.
