Walking Lightly... A Portrait of Einstein
Albert Einstein, the 20th century's most illustrious physicist, reshaped
our understanding of space, time and gravity and dazzled us with his brilliance.
The image of the genius, however, distanced us from Einstein the person.
The theatre piece presents Einstein's humanity, his commitment to friendship,
peace and education, and his grand sense of wonder and playfulness.
Time is a Lovely Friend
A theatre piece about the richness that time and experience bring.
Len sings, dances, and shares stories about home towns, a lady gardner, an ice
man, his Aunt Tootsie, and other tales that touch qualities that
are part of each of our lives. The work is full of soft turns and surprises.
Einstein and Niels Bohr... A Fairy Tale
Einstein and Bohr, the two giants of 20th century physics, were governed by
a deep rooted faith in our intuitive intelligence, and they had a grand sense
of play. They shared a passion for education and justice, sailing and long walks.
And they both were reared on fairy tales -- so they learned at an early age to
believe impossible things. Fairy tales are the seeds for a state of mind.

Einstein and Education
In l905 Einstein changed our perception of time and space. Now at the turn
of the 2lst century, Einstein's thoughts and practice in education can help
change our perception of what constitute the basics in education. The workshop

his daily life.
The Choreography of the Classroom
A workshop on teaching that includes the beginning and the end of a class,
the use of space, the rhythm of words and bodies, the wonder of silence,
and reminding oneself to have a good time.
Einstein and the Environment
Einstein was irresistibly drawn to the elemental be it in physics,
education or in sustainable living practices. As is the case in all
manner of crises, what is called for is candor. Enistein puts it plain
and simple: "We must try to recognize what in our accepted tradition
is damaging to our fate and dignity and shape our lives accordingly."
