Important Note from the Organizers (2/19/21) –
Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts has been CANCELED due to the ongoing concerns surrounding the Coronavirus. Refunds are available at the point-of-purchase. If you purchased your tickets at the San Jose Civic Box Office, please email us at [email protected] Thank you for your patience & understanding.
The highly popular and influential science advocate and author Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson brings two nights with two different topics to the Center for the Performing Arts.
On Monday, May 11th (tickets), Tyson presents “An Astrophysicist Goes to the Movies.” From Star Wars to Frozen to The Martian, this is an entertaining and enlightening review of all the science that popular movies got wrong, combined with some of the stuff they got right. Tyson will incorporate the latest films as well as some classics, sharing the science behind in them at all.
On Tuesday, May 12th (tickets), Tyson presents “The Cosmic Perspective.” There is no view of the world as emotionally potent as the one granted by a cosmic perspective. It’s one that sees Earth as a planet in a vast, empty universe. It profoundly influences what people think and feels about science, culture, politics, and life itself.
Tyson has managed to capture audiences with his sometimes humorous and always informative insights into modern physics. A regular guest on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, and host of his own enduring radio show StarTalk, Tyson continually inspires generations old and new to take an interest in the universe around them.
FLOW at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts scheduled for June 8th has been canceled. Refunds are available at the point-of-purchase.
Note from FLOW:
“Unfortunately, we are still at a point in which we cannot travel to North America in order to perform on our tour. While all of us in FLOW wanted to be able to hit the road this spring, in the interest of public health and safety, we regrettably cannot move forward. The well-being of our fans, our crew, and venue staff is of the utmost importance to us, and, with that in mind, we must forego touring during this pandemic.”
