October 13, 2015 – FREE EVENT – The Missing Generation (Sean Dorsey Dance)
Sean Dorsey is a San Francisco-based choreographer and dancer, celebrated as the nation’s first transgender modern dance choreographer. His new show, The Missing Generation, explores the contemporary impact of the loss of part of an entire generation of gay and transgender people to AIDS in the 1980s and 1990s. Dorsey created the show during a two-year intensive process that brought him to five cities across the U.S. where he conducted community residencies, research and oral history interviews with longtime survivors of the early epidemic. The voices and remarkable real-life stories recorded in these oral histories are featured in the show’s powerful multi-layered soundscore.

October 17, 2015 – Reptomania! Reptiles & Amphibians on the Road
The Science Alliance will dispel common reptilian myths with “Reptomania!” Steve Schindler, the expert on all things reptilian, will introduce huge toads and frogs, colorful snakes and exotic skinks, and a humongous monitor lizard! All ages will learn about how different adaptations allow the animals to live in specific habitats and what interesting physical modifications they are capable of to protect themselves from predators. Participation is a key to learning, and actually being able to see and sometimes touch live animals helps to bring a higher degree of understanding of these incredible creatures.
