- Icarus at the Edge of TimeSunday, April 25 @ 3 pm & 7:30 pm
**Please note: 7:30 pm show is now SOLD OUT.
Renowned physicist Brian Greene, art duo Al and Al, and award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang, in a discussion moderated by actor, author, director, and longtime science enthusiast Alan Alda, explore the creative process behind a brand-new performance inspired by Greene's moving futuristic reimagining of the Icarus fable. In this version, Icarus travels not to the sun but to a black hole, and in so doing poignantly dramatizes one of Einstein’s greatest insights leading to deeper appreciation of the cosmos. A coproduction of the World Science Festival and the Southbank Centre, musical excerpts with accompanying visuals and narration will be performed prior to the world premiere on June 2, 2010, at Lincoln Center.
