In 2021, Hilde Louise launched a new major work called Stardust. With a book and a stage show with the same name she presents eight legendary female artist from last century, their lives and their music. The book is a chronological venture through the century, placing the great artists: Bokken Lasson, Mae West, Josephine Baker, Bessie Smith, Marlene Dietrich, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Marilyn Monroe side by side, into history as it evolves. The show received raging reviews and is still touring Norway.

It does not come as a bomb or as a surprise to those who have followed Hilde Louise Asbjørnsen's career both as a recording artist, as a jazz vocalist or on the theater stage that she masters the vast majority of roles. Nevertheless, with "Stardust" she takes her artistry to a level she has not been at before.

It's hard to pinpoint what Hilde Louise Asbjørnsen's one-woman-show, titled "Stardust", truly is. It's presented as a kind of "TED Talk" with music, focusing on a small number of fascinating, strongminded women in the early age of jazz music. It's done through narration with anecdotes, portinons of songs infused with comedy and some choreography, accompanied by a three piece band. The mixture encapsulates into a great end result.
