Multiverse is an interdisciplinary concert and event series combining music and science in live performance. After a sold-out smash performance of Hidden Worlds at the Charles Hayden Planetarium last fall, and a groundbreaking digital concert of Unfolding Life this summer, the Museum of Science teams up with Multiverse once again for a new virtual event this August!

Have you ever wondered why we sleep? The role of sleep may be more complex than we think. Join neuroscientist Dr. Gina Poe of UCLA to discover how sleep is critical for remembering and forgetting memories, cementing and healing trauma, and influencing and responding to hormones. Explore the science with us through evocative discussion, immersive music and live dance.

Experience Multiverse in your homes for one night only.

Scientist: Gina Poe

Performers: Matt Sharrock, Marimba; Megan Anderson & Haley Day, Dance; The Table Manners, DJs

Music by: Errollyn Wallen, David Ibbett, I Monster
