Nick Mangafas

The Circus of Knowledge is proud to present the lives of important researchers, scholars, and scientists in a unique and unusual way.

The first installment of the series focuses on paleontologist Mary Anning.As a young girl, Mary discovered dinosaur fossils. Mary spent her entire life searching for fossils and her findings ultimately contributed significantly to the development of early paleontology. Ali Mayer-Pernkopf, a puppeteer and storyteller from Upper Austria, will recount the amazing and fascinating story.

Following the performance, visitors will be invited to meet researchers and take part in a workshop to learn more about Kamishibai - the 1000-year-old art of Japanese paper theater.

Suitable for ages 6 - 8
