Living History Lectures ~ Tames Alan
Historical, educational, hysterical. One costumed woman tells it like it WAS.
Heroes in the Sky: Greek Myths of the Constellations
Since the dawn of time, man has looked up at night and seen images in the constellations formed by the stars. Each culture created stories about those images, making the night sky an illustrated storybook spread across the heavens.
Dressed in the authentic costume of a woman from Ancient Greece, Tames will take the audience on an adventure through the heavens, bringing to life the stories of Perseus and Orion.
This interdisciplinary program combines the classical mythology of Ancient Greece with the science of astronomy. The audience will be entertained with masterful storytelling and will explore the constellations connected with these myths. They will learn how to find the constellations in the sky and learn about the stars, galaxies, and special features that make up the constellations.
