Evan-The-Magician-195x293Mosesian Arts Live presents

Mindless: Deception, Fraud, and Other Lies

Friday, April 7, 7:00 pm

 

A combination mind-reading and magic show that’s all about audience interaction. With magican Evan Northrup.

 

Evan is a magic creator and performer originally from Salem, MA. Beginning his performance career as a street performer, he traveled through Europe learning his skills and, upon his return, brought his unique style indoors. He has studied under masters in Las Vegas, and is constantly searching for new sources of magical inspiration. From designing illusions for theatrical productions to performing for companies and organizations around the country, Evan always puts his modern spin on some classics of magic.

Flat Earth Theatre presents
Silent Sky
March 10-25, 2017
Black Box Theater

At Harvard Observatory at the turn of the 20th century, Henrietta Leavitt joins a group of women tasked with charting the heavens without being allowed to touch a telescope. Despite restrictions placed on her because of her sex, Henri devotes her life to the study of celestial bodies just out of reach, balancing the needs of love and family close at hand. Inspired by the real-life woman whose work allowed astronomers to measure the distance of faraway galaxies, Lauren Gunderson’s melodious, evocative Silent Sky challenges how we explore our universe by revealing the music of the stars.

 

Silent Sky is supported in part by a grant from the Watertown Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
