About the show | You are gazing up at the night sky, as you have countless times before.  But this time, it is different.  This time, the sky gazes back. This time, heavens reveal stories, myths and legends echoing down through time and space. Constellations whisper tales and planets paint pictures as "Elegant Universe" takes you on a journey through the stars...

​First imagined in the spring of 2015, “Elegant Universe” began as a seed of an idea in a small creperie in Paris. Co-directors Faith Chang & Elena Faye wanted to create a theatrical production that would transport the audience through movement, music, imagery, and storytelling, using Middle Eastern and world dance fusion as the primary artistic medium.  One year later, they debuted "Elegant Universe” at the historic Theatre Adyar in Paris, France.  Now they are delighted to bring the show to their home country and share it with the American audience.
