ENTER THE ICE KINGDOM ~ Take a visual and audio journey to the poles in this hauntingly beautiful exhibition of large scale photographs of icebergs. Greenland’s vast ice cap is melting ~ come sail thru the surreal world of the Kingdom of Ice where cliffs & islands all are made of water, frozen and compressed and set adrift after a 10,000 year slide from distant mountaintops. See fantastical shapes of ice in dazzling colors of aqua and turquoise scattered like jewels on a black volcanic beach by the tremendous force of a relentless sea. A blue ice skylight gallery features panoramic views of a blue ice glacial wall and actual sounds of ice cracking and crashing into its own lagoon. Icebergs contain pristine 12,000 year old or older water ~ what is locked within? Icebergs can float across the sea for years and present challenges and opportunities to Arctic communities, the northern and southern ends of our Earth, and even deserts and islands far from icebergs‘ source. The photographer and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory climate scientist & Center for Climate & Life fellow Billy D'Andrea will be on hand to present and answer your questions about Icebergs and their journey from our distant past into our current times. A limited number of books “Sailing thru Icebergs” are available to first ticket Registrants

The TPA Presents: A SURVIVOR'S GUIDE TO THE NEW GOLDILOCKS ZONE With Christine McCarthy, Directed by David Mendizabal Do you worry about how rising sea levels may affect your morning commute? Are you concerned with how increasing CO2 levels will influence your ability to drink rose on rooftops? With life on Earth getting harder and harder thanks to global warming, do you think about where we might go when we can no longer survive on our planet? Blast off with geophysicist Christine McCarthy to learn more about an exciting new off-world relocation project. The Talks Progress Administration is a mad science experiment on stage – we’re pairing academic lecturers with theater directors to see what they’ll make together. The TPA is combining intellectual entertainment, creative discourse, and interactive storytelling like you’ve never seen before. What would happen if Bill Nye got cast in Sleep No More, if Jane Goodall sat down for tea with Brecht, or if Stephen Hawking wrote a new Hamilton-inspired rock opera? We don’t know, but we sure as hell can’t wait to find out. The TPA is a collaboration between The Story Collider and Caveat, and is supported by Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to engaging everyone with the process of science. Christine McCarthy is geophysicist at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University. She specializes in all things ice, from individual grains shearing in a glacier to icy moons of the outer solar system. David Mendizábal is a director, designer, and one of the Producing Artistic Leaders of The Movement Theatre Company. He currently serves as the Artistic Associate at Atlantic Theater Company. His directing credits include: And She Would Stand Like This (The Movement), On the Grounds of Belonging (The Public); Tell Hector I Miss Him (Atlantic); The Last Days of Judas Iscariot (American Conservatory Theatre), Evensong (APAC); Locusts Have No King (INTAR); Look Upon Our Lowliness and Bintou (The Movement). David is a Founding Member and Artistic Producer of The Sol Project, and a member of the Latinx Theatre Commons Steering Committee. B.F.A. NYU/Tisch. REFUND POLICY: Tickets maybe be refunded up to 24 hours before the event. Within 24 hours we may take exchanges for other events at our discretion. No refunds after the event.
