The Matter of Origins is part of ongoing programming associated with the ASU Origins Project and is the final capstone event of the Origins Project Weekend Celebration of Science and Culture.
MacArthur "genius" Fellowship recipient Liz Lerman take audiences on another fascinating journey after her remarkable 2006 Gammage performance, Ferocious Beauty: The Genome. Sometimes we discover truth through science, imagine it through art or discern it by faith. With Liz Lerman we seem to touch all three. What was the beginning of the universe? What was the beginning of the paper clip, the pencil, the handshake, the kiss, the Pledge of Allegiance? Some questions are huge. Some are small. The Matter of Origins is a performance, a conversation, a floor show, a quiz show and a chance to meet big minds. It's a dance to watch and a dance to learn.
