The Lewis Center for the Arts’ Princeton Atelier will present an original immersive theater experience inspired by cultural meditations on mortality, created by Princeton students as the culminating project of a spring course co-taught by graphic novelist Kevin Pyle and Jennine Willett, Co-Artistic Director of Third Rail Projects, a dance theater company known for immersive works. The 28-minute experience will be presented in intervals on May 5 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in New South on the Princeton campus.

It’s a musical. It’s also a multi-media performance piece and a contemporary thriller. There’s tango, a love interest and continent-hopping environmental intrigue. Both entertaining and informative, The Great Immensity is at the nexus of science and art. The groundbreaking investigative theater group The Civilians uses the production to focus on the quintessential question of our time: How can we change our society to solve the enormous environmental challenges we confront?
