In the first comprehensive and complete exhibit of its kind, Mysteries Below Ground: The Architecture of Ant Nests explores the intricate workings of 25 underground ant nests. This exhibit will reveal the enormous range of size and complexity of ant nest structure and reflects the range of scales in which ants live their lives. The exhibit also dives into Dr. Walter Tschinkel’s method of metal casting and the ways in which metal casting reveals a complete, precise and detailed version of ant nest architecture. Dr. Tschinkel’s casts have been featured in 16 museums around the world, from Paris to Hong Kong, including two casts at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. This exhibit will only be here until December 31, 2018, so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity.

1st Annual Micro Theater Festival @ Carriage House at Goodwood Museum
Jul 20 @ 8:00 pm – 8:00 pm
1st Annual Micro Theater Festival @ Carriage House at Goodwood Museum | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

Tallahassee Hispanic Theater presents four short plays that will be performed in the same space: the Carriage House at Goodwood Museum. Besides the plays, the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy Hispanic food, drinks and live music, interpreted by Charles Santiago and Jesse García.

This will be a non-traditional theater event, where the audience will be able to enjoy the setting, the music, and the performances presented all in the same open space, while moving freely around the space and mingling with others.

THT will be presenting four 15-20 minute plays written by well-known playwrights, as well as fresh new pieces by young authors.

“The Madwoman of Chaillot” is a play written by Venezuelan actress, director and playwright Gladys Prince, inspired by the play with the same name written by Jean Giraudoux in 1943. It tells the story of an eccentric and sharp-tongued woman with a mix of satire and comedy that undoubtedly will charm the audience. Directed by Alejandra Gutierrez and interpreted by Marcy Palmer.

The play “A Brief Encounter” was written by one of the most important contemporary playwrights from Spain: Jose Luis Alonso de Santos. It’s a conversation between a subway driver and a lonely woman who spend the night together after meeting at a bar. With a tragicomic tone we learn about their sorrows and hopes. Directed by Jeff Mandel.

“And the Oscar should go to” is a fresh comedy by Spanish playwright Marc Egea. It’s Oscar night and the presenter, an old Hollywood legend, has made a mistake reading the name of the winner for Best Actress. What will he do? And more importantly, what will she do? Directed by Mickey Clickner, and interpreted by Mike Herrin and Amanda Street.

In “A Trip to the Future” Lana and Tom explore the possibilities that the future may have for them in a “trip” full of surprises. The piece is filled with pop culture references, from Back to the Future to The Matrix. It was written by Nathalia Paolini, a Venezuelan actress, director, and playwright who currently lives in Spain. Directed by Kevin Carr.

Contains adult language.
