ONLINE Feathers of Fire--The Movie
WHEN: Jun. 4 - 4, Anytime
WHERE: Vimeo, 155 First Ave., New York, NY
AGES: All
WHAT:

"Feathers of Fire--The Movie" is an ingenious production of theater-on-film, conceived and directed by Hamid Rahmanian. It is intended for audiences aged 5 to 105. This film is a video version of "Feathers of Fire," the most elaborate shadow theater experience ever created, which was presented by BAM and other venues worldwide from 2016-2018 and won the UNIMA USA award for excellence in live performance and design. The plot is an action-packed tale of two star-crossed lovers of old Persia, based on a story from Shahnameh (the Persian Book of Kings). Zaul, an outcast albino boy, is brought up by a bird-goddess and grows up into a wise ruler. He enters into a forbidden love with Rudabeh, a princess who is the granddaughter of the dreaded Serpent King. Their young, impetuous romance survives many precarious adventures before they finally receive blessings for their union. When they ultimately have a child, it is Rostam, "the Hercules of Iran." Aspects of the story are reminiscent of "Romeo and Juliet," "Rapunzel," "The Firebird" and "Jungle Book." The piece is created and directed by Hamid Rahmanian, a 2014 Guggenheim fellowship-winning filmmaker/visual artist living in Brooklyn. It is endorsed by Francis Ford Coppola, who called the production "Fantastic! One of the greatest epics of all time and my favorite Shahnameh brought to life in a spectacular fashion by Hamid Rahmanian with shadow puppets design and cinematic wizardry."

WHERE: Museum of Mathematics, 11 E. 26th St., NoMad, NY
AGES: All
WHAT:

Session 1: 11am: Start your morning off right with some eye-opening pi…
11am: “Roping Around the World”
Come test your intuition with a mathematical problem about a rope tied around the Earth.  Explore the counterintuitive solution with an engaging, hands-on activity.

11:30am: “Why don’t we celebrate Phi Day?”
Phi, also known as the Golden Ratio, is one of the most unique irrational numbers in all of mathematics.  Come learn about this fascinating number that shows up in all sorts of unexpected places, including a number of MoMath exhibits.  Then, discover how the number pi, in contrast, truly is more special and deserving of its own holiday and how pi transcends the basic rules of arithmetic.

Session 2: 2pm: Who needs high tea when you can have pi glee?
2pm: “Probably Pi?”
While it is impossible to write pi in its entirety, various methods exist to generate better and better approximations.  In this crowd-sourced experiment, see how the law of large numbers lets us confidently approach pi by using probability.  By randomly dropping a needle onto a set of lines, we can converge on pi experimentally, without the need for direct measurement. Help generate data to see how many digits of pi we can get — the more, the mathier!

2:30pm: “What is the value of Pi?”
Throughout history, people have tried to compute the exact value of pi.  Ancient Babylonians believed that pi = 25/8, Egyptians thought that pi = (16/9)^2 = 256/81, while the Indiana state legislature almost passed a bill in 1897 stating that pi = 3.2.  We know now that pi cannot be computed exactly; join MoMath and use geometric constructions to find rational approximations.

Session 3: 7pm: Pi by night: BYOP…join Alex Kontorovich for an evening exploration — and bring your own (pizza) pi! 
Join MoMath’s Distinguished Visiting Professor, Alex Kontorovich, for an exploration of pi.  What does pi have to do with circles?  How can we be sure that pi is bigger than three…or smaller than four?  How can the power of pi surprise us when we look at everyday household items?  And how can we use everyone’s favorite food to learn more about this amazing number?  Join in to find out…and bring your own pizza pi!  Click here to register for this evening session.

The following materials may be helpful but are not required:

a toilet paper or paper towel roll and a sharpie
an assortment of round household containers
a pizza pie
 

WANT TO GO? $15 each session; discount available for all three sessions. 212-542-0566. https://momath.org/pi-day-2021/.
