In the late 19th century (the setting for The Explorers Club) it seemed like there was still plenty of uncharted territory left to explore - or at least plenty of places left on Earth untouched by upper-class British adventurers. Now, in the 21st century, outer space and the ocean depths are common goals for exploration. However, one of the current expeditions sponsored by the modern-day Explorers Club is coming from a little bit different perspective. The Nexus Expedition is Dimitri Kieffer’s human-powered journey to circumnavigate the world. To this day, Kieffer has covered 11, 067 miles from Anchorage to Bukhara, Uzbekistan: trekking, swimming, skiing, rowing and cycling across Alaska, the Bering Strait, Far Eastern Russia, Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Summer and Fall of 2015 will be spent cycling towards the Western coast of Africa, where the row across the Atlantic Ocean will begin. Kieffer seeks not to plant flags or draw lines, but to create connections between different societies, civilizations and landscapes. Imagine, what will the future bring?

IN THE NEWS: ABC Newspapers recent story about Lyric Arts 21st Season Opening Show, "Wait Until Dark"
From Lyric Arts Resident Director Scott Ford
Good suspense leaves us heavily invested in plot and character. We hate it and love it at the same time. We vicariously experience danger and anxiety while looking forward to the satisfaction of the eventual resolution for our hero.
