Dark Matter - Ascent, May 18 & 19, 2012
Kansas City: See Yourself as Never Before
Dark Matter presents a limited engagement of the Rocket Grant winning performance Ascent at Union Station's Arvin Gottlieb Planetarium. Float like an astronaut in near-space as you view Kansas City from 95,000 feet up. Witness the Kansas City community join together and build a high-altitude camera balloon system. Follow the road trip across the entire state of Missouri, from Kansas to Illinois, seeing cities and major landmarks from a vantage point higher than commercial airliners. Presented on a huge, 60 foot dome with surround projection and an original, live musical score, Ascent is an audio-visual treat audiences won't soon forget. Hailed by KC Metropolis as a "successful, fun mix of art and science" and by the Kansas City Star as "interesting, relaxing, stimulating and refreshing," Dark Matter is a collaboration of composers, performers, and scientists. It fuses cutting-edge technology with exceptional musical artistry. The result is an art form that blurs the boundaries among performance, education, and composition.
