  Ellie Ga is closing out the Spring EMPAC season on May 7 and 8. Ellie Ga's multimedia essays are part field dispatch, part artist’s notebook, part home-movie, part poem.

On Thursday, May 7, at 8PM, Ga will perform The Fortunetellers, a narrative performance inspired by her six-month residency on the Tara, a research boat drifting near the North Pole to gather scientific data.

On Friday, May 8, at 8PM, she will perform Eureka, a lighthouse play - Commissioned by EMPAC, Eureka centers on the Great Lighthouse of Alexandria and recounts Ga’s journey, beginning in 2012 when she joined a marine archaeology program at Alexandria University in pursuit of the lighthouse.

Ellie Ga joins us now along with Victoria Brooks, a Curator at EMPAC.
