Fiske Planetarium Presents: Zazu Dreams: A Declaration of Interdependence, A Love Story 

“Zazu Dreams: A Declaration of Interdependence, A Love Story” is based on the critically acclaimed 2017 book, Zazu Dreams: Between the Scarab and the Dung Beetle, A Cautionary Fable for the Anthropocene Era.  Author, Dr. Cara Judea Alhadeff, and biodiversity advocate and educator, Rob Mies, will perform excerpts from Zazu Dreams that challenge consumer-addicted convenience-culture. Rooted in environmental science and cross-cultural storytelling, this is a tale of climate justice and social permaculture. Big pharma, big oil, and agribusiness giants stalk planet Earth while a Sephardic Arab-Jewish boy confronts environmental racism as he learns from symbiotic relationships among humans and within the natural world. This creative non-fiction performance will include lush visuals by Micaela Amato Amateau, live Persian and Ladino (Judeo-Arabic/Spanish) music, calls-to-action from local environmental and cultural organizations, and live Persian and Ladino (Judeo-Arabic/Spanish) music by Catrene MalsheyPete Jacobs, Gabrielle Shapiro, Dhanwant Garcia, and the Persian Cultural Circle.

April 28th & 29th 7-8:30pm
