BELLA GAIA is an immersive, awe-inspiring theater experience that expresses the deeply moving beauty of planet Earth as seen through the eyes of astronauts - projected NASA visualizations of Earth from space, with live music by creator Kenji Williams, world musicians, and dance from around the world.
The award-winning show illuminates the connections between natural systems and human activities, transforming complex scientific data into an accessible audio-visual experience to expand public understanding of global challenges we face and inspire audiences to act as stewards for our shared resources.
BELLA GAIA captures the “Overview Effect,” using satellite imagery of Earth, time lapses, cultural heritage footage, NASA data visualizations and a customized musical score to present a spectacular journey around the planet that engages the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide. Bella Gaia’s powerful methodology transcends politics or belief systems and has been proven so effective that astronauts say the experience is an accurate simulation of space flight.
“BELLA GAIA shows you how humans and nature are connected, and how art and science are connected. Itʼs an exploration of the relationship between human civilization and our ecosystem.”- Kenji Williams, BELLA GAIA Founder & Director
