Please tune-in from home for an online viewing of A Toast to Science and the Arts, to support the launch of the 2021 World Science Festival. This celebratory film includes an invitation-only preview of Until the End of Time, an original stage work featuring Brian Greene. Journeying from the big bang to the end of time, this digital experience explores how lasting structures formed, how life and mind emerged, and how we grapple with our fleeting existence within the grand cosmological unfolding.

The 2021 World Science Festival comprises a year-long series of signature explorations featuring world-leading thinkers, artists and innovators discussing cutting edge ideas, recent discoveries and future opportunities. These events will blend virtual theatrical staging, immersive visuals and engaging design to present vibrant conversations and performances, media-rich debates and novel educational offerings for all ages.

The runtime is 90 minutes.
