Broadway Behind The Scenes: "Bella Gaia"
Take your troop to a theater workshop and Broadway production! Learn first-hand how Broadway actors and other world-class artists made it to the top, what life is like on the road, and how the production team creates “magic” on the stage.
Organized by community partners Arts Express, in partnership with Broadway in Tucson and UApresents, this day-long package includes a theater workshop with standout professional artists, lunch, a behind-the-scenes look at the show’s production, and admission to the matinee! All girls will receive an Arts Express fun patch.
About the Workshop: Close your eyes for a moment and listen to the space you are in. Do you hear the sound of the computer, the rumble of cars passing by on the sheet, the rhythmic agitation of the washing machine? The sounds of your daily life create something that's called a soundscape. Explore how the soundscape of your life can take musical form. Collaborate with fellow students to develop your own composition based on the soundscape of the U of A campus!
About the Production: BELLA GAIA (Beautiful Earth) is an award-winning, immersive, live multimedia performance, of projected NASA visualizations of Earth from Space, with live world music and dance on stage. Inspired by astronauts who spoke of the life changing power of seeing the Earth from space, award winning director, composer, and violinist Kenji Williams, created this multimedia journey of our world in partnership with NASA, combining stunning NASA imagery of the Earth from space, data visualizations, and stirring live performances of music and dance from around the world, threaded by an orbiting flight path from the International Space Station.
