A performance as the “Man of the Century,” Albert Einstein, physicist and humanitarian
In this one-hour interactive performance, George invites you to enter the boundary-breaking universe that is the mind of Albert Einstein. You will discover that time and space are inseparable, that time actually slows down the faster you go, and that if you could travel at the speed of light, time would actually stop!
But there’s a lot more to the story than Einstein’s insights into the nature of reality. George focuses on the great scientist’s very human qualities, including his sense of humor, his fondness for Jewish jokes, and his trials and tribulations as a family man. A video clip from a recent performance of “Relatively Speaking” is available here: https://vimeo.com/223697300
As part of the show, you’ll time travel with George on the trajectory of Einstein’s life — from lowly patent clerk in a Swiss office to world-class physicist. And you’ll gain insight into two of his greatest scientific achievements: the special theory of relativity and the general theory of relativity, both of which overturned long-held views about the very nature of reality and pointed the way to the computer revolution of the 21st century.
This year, celebrate the man of the century by inviting George to your library, senior center, assisted living home, museum, or conference. Special educational performances are available for schools, grades 4 and up.
Albert Einstein: Relatively Speaking is the first part of a two-part dramatization. The second part — Albert Einstein: Reluctant Superstar — is also a stand-alone performance but focused on Einstein’s later years as a rebel with a cause, fighting for social justice and individual freedom, and against racism and war. Part two also explores Einstein’s escape from Germany and his lifelong involvement with humanitarian issues.
“Human knowledge and skills alone cannot lead humanity to a happy and dignified life. Humanity has every reason to place the proclaimers of high moral standards and values above the discoverers of objective truth.” — ALBERT EINSTEIN
As of October 2015, George became an official member of Solo Together, “a guild of performing artists and history enthusiasts who bring politics, arts and sciences from bygone days to life.”
In addition to performing as Albert Einstein, George offers a variety of storytelling programs for children of all ages. His programs reflect his commitment to integrating the arts with educational goals and feature age-appropriate folktales, fables, and myths.
