- Program Description
Around the world and through the ages there have been people and traditions that take our everyday, hum-drum reality... and turn it on its head! From the British surrender at Yorktown to Brazilian Carnival celebrations, from Victorian nonsense poetry to the Hindu Festival of Colors, people have been turning the World Upside Down for millennia, and learning something about ourselves and how we see reality. Ellen Kushner explores how we flip reality through music and story.
