In celebration for the 2017 Solar Eclipse, we have been producing a live performance about how cultures around the world have interpreted eclipses and have been at the root of turning points in history. Since these ancient civilizations, we have come quite far in our understanding of these events. Come learn how we understand eclipses today, and how you can watch this year’s eclipse safely and enjoyably. Special viewing glasses will be available for purchase for safely seeing the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.

You can purchase tickets in advance here.
