Our attraction to the moon was first expressed through music, poetry, even superstition. Science fiction then created a shift toward thinking about the moon in a scientific, technological way. Now, with plans for lunar-orbiting space station, we are about to make it an extension of the earth itself.
Our fascination with the moon has not always been pure; the “race to the moon” was driven by military, propaganda and patriotic considerations. What place will the moon occupy in our future? Lunacy is a musical, scientific, visual exploration of our relationship with our closest celestial body, past, present and future.
How do you craft an emotional story while translating very technical and abstract information? Drawing from raw tape of interviews with scientists, Jad Abumrad focuses on the inherent struggles in science communication (or interpreting any technical or difficult information) – what happens when you get it wrong, how to fix it, and how it’s useful to embrace error in the process. With opening performance by the Beaker Band from 6-7pm.
Reuben and the Dark are a Canadian indie folk band from Calgary, Alberta and have made monumental artistic statements with powerful imagery and lush sonic detail at the forefront of their sound. Come enjoy this exciting event!
“Del Barber is a singer-songwriter from Manitoba, whose winsome balladry and wry wit harken back to country-folk traditions that remind the listener of the late greats of songwriting history.”
