The Third Indeterminacy Festival & Hallwalls present

Liaison to The Farthest

We will screen two works this evening, one that grapples with the relationships between individual and object here on earth and the other which goes outwards, leaving Earth behind to link our relationships with what lies beyond.

Liaison is a work for piano and dancer conceived by Megan Beugger and made in collaboration with Buffalo-based dancer/choreographer Melanie Aceto.

The Farthest explores NASA's epic Voyager mission Launched in 1977 which revolutionized our understanding of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune and their spectacular moons and rings. In 2012, Voyager 1 pierced the bubble of our solar system and ushered humanity into the interstellar age. Voyager 2 is expected to join it in interstellar space within the next few years. Both Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 continue to function, and send daily updates back to Earth from almost 13 billion miles and almost 11 billion miles away, respectively.

The Farthest features more than 20 original and current Voyager team members, providing never-before-seen insights into one of the greatest feats of exploration our species has ever undertaken.

This event is a part of this year's third annual Indeterminacy Festival themed PastFuture/FuturePast, focusing on our past and future communication with the earth and beyond.
