A “new form of experiential portal...to make a deeper connection with our beautiful planet” –Examiner.

Bella Gaia is an unprecedented audiovisual experience that combines NASA satellite imagery of Earth, time-lapse nature photography, and evocative cultural heritage footage with stirring live performances of music and dance from around the world.

The April 17th event features a rare collaboration with Astronaut Mae Jemison, the first woman of color in the world in space. Dr. Jemison will perform spoken word on stage in a truly stunning debut.

Inspired by astronauts who spoke of the life changing power of seeing the Earth from space, director-composer Kenji Williams’ award winning Bella Gaia successfully simulates the Overview Effect from space flight, by using NASA supercomputer data-visualizations with an “iridescent landscape of gossamer melodies and labyrinthine rhythms” (Nooga.com) to explore the relationship between humans and nature through time and space.

"A stunning work of multimedia entertainment" –Phoenix New Times.

“Haunting classical/world fusion music ... creating a mesmerizing spectacle that should not be missed” –Jennifer Schwab, Huffington Post.

"Discover what it’s like to be an astronaut" –Washington Post.

"Out of this World" –USA Today.

“Awe-Inspiring” –Examiner.

“Breathtaking audio-visual exploration that will transform your view of life on earth” (AZ Weekly) with a “sound and visual environment that mesmerizes audiences” –Hollywood Progressive.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
