March 2013 - Inventing Earth is sponsoring the production workshop for a full-length opera that takes a hard look at a science, technology, and ethics using the dystopian lens of the "steampunk" literary genre. The original work was also the focus of Inventing Earth's 2011 production workshop, where three scenes from Act One were developed in Phoenix, Arizona and then showcased at The Great New England Steampunk Exhibition outside Boston, Massachusetts. The new workshop will produce the now complete work for performances in Boulder and Denver in April and May 2013. The showcase performace April 27th at The Pine Street Church in Boudler will benefit Inventing Earth and also highlight the work of another non-profit, the Colorado Ocean Coalition, dedicated to promoting healthy oceans through education and community engagement. For more information about the opera, Queen Victoria's Floating Garden of Secrets and Natural Wonders, visit luminousthread.com.
Inventing Earth is a playspace, sandbox, charrette, world cafe, artspace, and mindbank. We welcome artists, inventors, gardeners of the mind, and creatives of all types to join us for propagation and dissemination of the seeds of the new Earth-in-Renaissance.
