"THE LONG WAY TO THE STARS" (performance)
Sunday 13 May 2018 - 11:00 to 12:00
Location: Mtel Arena at “John Atanassoff” building, Sofia Tech Park
„The Long Way to the Stars“ is an interactive Augmented Lecture performance that introduces us to the latest scientific theories about the origin of the Solar System and life in general. This original performance will travel deep into the scientific background and philosophical questions that arise in the world of astrobiology – a modern discipline that connects astrophysics, biology, chemistry, geology and philosophy. Current astrobiological research is aimed at the search for habitable exoplanets in deep space. Could we find a second Earth out there, or may be the meaning of life itself? Enjoy the interactive search for answers in „The Long Way to the Stars“! The performance during the Sofia Science Festival 2018 will be the official premiere of the show.
The brave team behind the project – Andrea Brunello, Director and Playwright of Jet Propulsion Theatre, Italy, Dr. Vladimir Bozhilov from the Department of Astronomy at the Faculty of Physics at Sofia University and Dimitar Uzunov, Director and Actor at Famille Mundi, Paris, and at Arte Urbana Collectif, Sofia – brings theatre and science together.
The event will be in English without translation.
