A Free Concert and Celebration of Thai World Music at
Ithaca's State Theater
Taste of Thai Express, The Foreign Ministry of Thailand and Singha Beer present Himmapan: 2nd World, at the State Theater in Ithaca on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. The show is free and open to the public. It features a troupe of 12 to 16 Thai performers that dance, sing, and play music. The performance also uses original video and acoustic storytelling. Its message is that the peaceful co-existence found among the animals in the mythical forest of Himmapan is an example for our world's myriad of personalities and our need to find such harmony.
CHANGES THIS WEEK:

Steven Strogatz "the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Applied Mathematics at Cornell University" will read from his new book The Calculus of Friendship a story of an extraordinary connection between a teacher and a student, as chronicled through more than thirty years of letters between them.

For anyone whose life has been changed by a mentor, The Calculus of Friendship will be an unforgettable journey. Steven Strogatz will be available to sign copies and answer questions.
