The Space Between at Harvard University
April 24 - May 2, 2009
The premiere of an original, student-devised show, The Space Between reimagines the life story of Caltech professor and physicist Richard Feynman in new, mythic proportions. Feynman's narrative is one of a series of stories that are interwoven throughout the show. Events ranging from his wife's struggle with tuberculosis and his own battle with cancer are juxtaposed with the creation story, moments from his time teaching at Caltech, and scenes set at Los Alamos as work commences on the atomic bomb. As the show oscillates between scenes set in different places and times, it explores questions that emerge from the narratives and are fundamental to both the arts and the sciences: What does it mean to see? What does it mean to know?
