Converging Arts & Ideas: Corsets, Bikes, Science and A String Quartet
"Where We Live" broadcasts live from the International Festival of Arts & Ideas.
As usual, this year’s lineup features a wide array of performances and discussions from a “comic-rap-scrap metal musical” to a talk about our hunter-gatherer past.
Today, we’ll talk with some other artists and big-thinkers about the role of New Haven in this festival and the intersection of arts and ideas.
We’ll be joined by science writer Carl Zimmer, who’s a science columnist for the New York Times
We’ll also be joined by some members of A Broken Umbrella Theatre whose latest production looks at the intersection of corsets and bicycles in 1800s New Haven.
And our house band for this morning....the String Quartet Truck will also be playing across the city...yes, on the back of a flatbed truck!
