Ellie Ga: Eureka, a lighthouse play and The Fortunetellers
Tuesday, June 30, 6:30 pm
Peter B. Lewis Theater
Steeped in research, Ellie Ga’s performances and video installations occupy a space between history, science, myth, and memory. For this event, Ga presents two narrative-based performances accompanied by projections of photographs, video, and annotated sketches. Eureka, a lighthouse play
(2012–14) follows the artist’s exploration of the destroyed Lighthouse of Alexandria while The Fortunetellers (2007–11) ruminates on the rituals of life aboard a scientific research vessel in the Arctic. Research and production for Eureka, a lighthouse play and The Fortunetellers is funded in part by Grand
Arts, Kansas City and The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm.
$15, $10 members, $5 students, includes an exhibition viewing and reception. For more information, visit
