CLEVELAND - Cleveland Museum of Natural History will be showing the Moth Project. You can see the details below.
Thursday, February 9, 2023
Doors open at 5 pm. The lecture will be from 5:30 to 6 pm, followed by a Q&A.
The Moth Project will perform from 6:30 to 7:45 pm. The evening begins with a presentation by the Museum’s Chief Science Officer, Dr. Gavin Svenson. He will introduce the audience to the importance of insects in our environment, how they are affected by environmental change, and the role humans can play in protecting and sharing our ecosystem.
THE MOTH PROJECT is a unique multimedia performance —about and inspired by moths—featuring GRAMMY-nominated keyboardist Peter Kiesewalter and accomplished Broadway and pop music violinist Whitney La Grange. The artists play a wide variety of music—from Bach to Joni Mitchell to KISS—in front of a large screen featuring moths and the fascinating world they inhabit. Weaving together stories, culture, myths, and science through a visually stunning tour of macro photographs, slow-motion video, and graphics, the performance focuses on the parallel journeys of humans and all living things, the connections between humans and nature, and the origins of these connections in Native American culture.
