Research meets fantasy in Theory of Flight, a performance by Anna Lindemann, a composer and artist trained in evolutionary and developmental biology. In a twist on the ancient myth of Icarus, a lecturing scientist reveals she’s been growing her own wings using avian genes. Animated chalkboard diagrams convey the molecular biology, while vocal music and animated silhouettes advance the plot, about the risks and rewards of pursuing impossible research.

Theory of Flight features Lucy Fitz Gibbon, noted for her clear voice (Mittelbayerische Zeitung) and endearing stage presence (The New York Times), as the Bird Spirit, and Anna Lindemann as scientist Alida Kear. The music, animation, and story are created by Anna Lindemann. The performance is directed by Kristen Demaree.

Performance run time is 50 minutes with a talkback following the show.
