WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Does humanity have a chance to survive on Spaceship Earth? Writer/philosopher/mathematician/geometer/poet/architect/designer/inventor/futurist/environmentalist/sustainability advocate/Renaissance-man R. Buckminster Fuller explores this question in a dazzling multimedia performance, as embodied by A.R.T. actor Thomas Derrah. Inventor of the geodesic dome, Bucky Fuller was a true visionary, and this play provides an expansive look at his life, ideas, and his belief in individual capacities to reinvent both self and environment. His objective was to put our lives back in our own laps, through "thinking-out-loud" personal testimony that helps ground us within the larger flows of time, place, history, and the Universe. Through philosophical riffs, revealing personal stories, geometrical demonstrations, songs, movement, dance, and vivid projections (including historical photos, footage, home movies, artistic sketches, and theoretical drawings), this production takes the audience on a roller coaster ride of ideas, emotions, and critical paths to either utopia or oblivion.
