Program Details*

Title

Flatland/Sphereland

Description

In 1890, English head master & Shakespearean scholar Edwin Abbott published his most beloved work Flatland. It was about the geometric residents of a 2-dimensional world and a square's encounter wth a circle wth seemingly super powers. In 1965 the sequel Sphereland was published about 4-dimensional beings and curved spaces. I will show the computer-animated versions of both these classics using the voice talents of actors such as Martin Sheen & Michael York.
