Flatland

The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Information is pleased to announce:

FLATLAND: A Romance of Many Dimensions
A Miniature Opera by Randall Wong Performed by Dina Emerson and Randall Wong

Adapted from Edwin Abbott's celebrated 1884 geometric novel, FLATLAND is a miniature opera about the multiplicity of dimensions and the discovery of what exists beyond the seen. Flatland is a two dimensional world peopled by geometric shapes -- points, lines, squares, and circles -- who learn that the universe consists of more than their single plane. In the tradition of the Victorian Toy Theater, the opera is staged upon a large tabletop, giving the effect of a performance viewed through the wrong end of a telescope. FLATLAND, composed and co-performed by esteemed male soprano Randall Wong, juxtaposes the grand and the microscopically absurd, and collides Victorian stagecraft and illusion with modern toys and technology.

Friday, January 26th: 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, January 27th: 3:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, January 28th: 3:00 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.
