Mountains, rivers, animals, plants, a glacier, a waterfall, a forest, an ocean current and an ocean bay, not to mention streets and cities in several countries, three counties in the U.S. and a certain California state university—all named for Alexander von Humboldt. But why? Who in the world was Alexander von Humboldt?
After more than a year of research and creative contributions by HSU students and faculty in several disciplines, HSU Theatre, Film & Dance addresses that question with Humboldt Unbound.
Director Michael Fields and his Dell’Arte team bring their patented brand of theatricality to Humboldt’s voyages into the outer and inner unknowns.
