Written in collaboration with an internationally renowned team of planetary scientists, Beneath was originally staged in the Marston Exploration Theater, a Tempe, AZ planetarium that uses Definite SkySkan Planetarium technology and 4K projection systems. The cast was comprised of professional actors and planetary scientists who were also belly dancers, ballet dancers, and a bassist - moved within a series of 3D projections depicting the moving and shifting forces below our feet. Premiered in May 2017. Available for touring in 2D and 3D.
