STAR MESSENGERS was commissioned by the Kahn Liberal Arts Institute at Smith College to examine the interconnections of art, science, and ethics in the Renaissance and the present day. The play was developed through interdisciplinary, interdepartmental partnerships engaging all aspects of Galileo’s work in the creation and presentation of the performance.
