THE STARRY MESSENGER
20. March @ 19:00 – 20:00
The Starry Messenger is inspired by the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei and his famous and seminal book “Sidereus Nuncius”. The book was published just over 400 years ago in 1610 in Venice.
Galileo Galilei’s discoveries contradicted Aristotelian cosmology – the Earth is the center of the universe with the Sun and planets circling around it – and caused quite a stir.
But in this version by Donald Kitt, the significance of Galileo’s discovery (that the earth, and therefore humans, are not the center of the universe) is transformed from this undeniable fact into a lively, humorous and thought-provoking theatrical performance.
In Kitt’s performance, we are confronted with modern man, formerly the Lord of the Universe, who now suddenly finds himself as small as a fly, alone in infinite space.
