A “new form of experiential portal...to make a deeper connection with our beautiful planet” –Examiner.

Bella Gaia - featuring Dr. Mae Jemison, leader of 100 Year Starship and former astronaut LIVE!

Bella Gaia is an unprecedented audiovisual experience that combines NASA satellite imagery of Earth, time-lapse nature photography, and evocative cultural heritage footage with stirring live performances of music and dance from around the world.

The April 17th event features a rare collaboration with astronaut Mae Jemison, the first woman of color in the world in space. Dr. Jemison will perform spoken word on stage in a truly stunning debut.

Inspired by astronauts who spoke of the life changing power of seeing the Earth from space, director-composer Kenji Williams’ award winning Bella Gaia successfully simulates the Overview Effect from space flight, by using NASA supercomputer data-visualizations with an “iridescent landscape of gossamer melodies and labyrinthine rhythms” (Nooga.com) to explore the relationship between humans and nature through time and space.
