The Encyclopedia Show Presents Series 5, Vol 9: The Origin of Life

Previous Next

The Encyclopedia Show is a live literary variety show with unrivaled nerd-core charm. Commissioning exceptional local talent, nationally touring artists, and renowned thinkers that have included Lynda Barry, Sonia Sanchez, Paul Sereno, Bill Ayers, and Marc Smith, The Encyclopedia Show features spoken word, monologues, storytelling, live music, comedy, and yes, even actual experts.

This month's installment is an especially specially special show because we are partnering with the Emory Department of Chemistry and the National Science Foundation to discover The Origin of Life! With a diverse, brilliant line-up of music, writing, and miscellany on topics such as creation myths, arsenic based life, artificial chemical life and interstellar clouds, the show is out of this world.




Recorded live Thursday, May 2, 2013 at The Vittum Theater.
