Want to Go to There

Star Wars Identities

The name itself has caught your attention, right? What does it even mean? Does it mean I can go back in time and be a part of Empire Strikes Back?????????


But! It is a traveling exhibition that dives into the psyches of all our favorite characters.
The website for the exhibition describes it with the following lovely bullet points.

  • A vast collection of Star Wars props, costumes, models, and artwork from the Lucasfilm Archives, including iconic items like Darth Vader’s costume, the Millennium Falcon model, and Anakin’s full-sized Podracer.
  • An insightful investigation into the sciences of identity, developed by the MontrĂ©al Science Centre and a committee of scientific advisers, shedding light on what can make fictional characters who they are and what makes you you.
  • An interactive Identity Quest inviting you to create your own unique and personalizedStar Wars hero.
  • Behind the scenes insight into the creation of the characters of Star Wars and fun facts from the movie-making process.
 You wanna go, don't you? It's in Montreal from April 19, 2012 through September 16, 2012 and then in Edmonton from October 27, 2012 until I don't know when because the website doesn't say. Further research it you will!
