ADDITIONS ANNOUNCED TO A LIGHT IN THE VOID: HANA HAYES, TROY BAKER, AND TINA GUO
The world premiere event will feature the Colorado Symphony on October 5, 2018
Aug. 29, 2018 – Denver, CO – The incredible cast of A LIGHT IN THE VOID, which already included a trio of world-renowned scientists, has added to their ranks with the additions of legendary actor Troy Baker playing opposite youth star Hana Hayes (The Last of Us) and cello phenomenon Tina Guo as featured soloist.
Funded by a record-setting Kickstarter campaign, A LIGHT IN THE VOID interweaves spoken word from world-renowned scientists with a moving dramatic narrative to tell a timeless coming-of-age parable about facing the unknown. The show features three of the world’s most respected scientists in Maria Spiropulu, Alice Roberts, and Carolyn Porco while the entire concert is set to original symphonic music. The world premiere will take place in Boettcher Concert Hall on Friday, October 5, 2018.
Award-winning composer, and Colorado-native, Austin Wintory (Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, ABZÛ, Journey) and acclaimed filmmaker Anthony Lund (THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN, BREAKTHROUGH) hope to encourage curiosity and love of science through the emotional power of music and storytelling through this one-of-a-kind project.
