MAX 2019: A Space Festival Brings An Arts-Meets-Science Fueled Odyssey of Space Exploration to San Francisco

Partnering with the Exploratorium, the California Academy of Sciences, and Z Space, the festival will present musicians, performers, photographers, artist-engineers, conceptual artists, game designers and drag queens, all charged with bringing the exploration of space to immersive, educational and entertaining life over the course of three days; participants include: the Kronos Quartet; producer Sasha Samochina from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Visual Operations Lab exploring the relationship between human and machine that will include dancer Alice Sheppard engaging in a pas de deux with a robot designed by artist-engineer Alexander Reben that explores the ambiguities of the term; a large-group augmented reality game involving uncertainty, chaos and precision entitled Heisenberg; also playwright, performer, and composer Ethan Lipton (who once appeared with Laurie Anderson) and his Orchestra will perform their musical "The Outer Space", which depicts the fraught fortunes resulting from the reliance on a second hand spaceship purchased in order to move out and into the final frontier.

MAX Festival Opening Night Kicks off at After Dark at the Exploratorium with "Space Travel Sci-Fi Style" and will present 18 programs over the next 3 days at the Exploratorium, the California Academy of Sciences, and Z Space.

Some events are FREE for the general public, while others may come with membership at the partner venues. Individual tickets as well as festival passes are available
