National Geographic Live — Social By Nature

2018-2019 National Geographic >

What's a human? We are, at our core, social mammals. We build relationships, communicate, reproduce, establish territories, and adapt to shrinking resources. In these ways, we're no different than other social mammals. Chimpanzees, wolves, gorillas, and bears are among the most charismatic of the mammals we know. We identify with them as species, groups, and even as named individuals. They're also under threat. Join biologist turned photographer Ronan Donovan as he talks about his work in documenting these animals and what we, as fellow social mammals, can learn from them.

National Geographic Live brings the top National Geographic photographers, scientists, filmmakers, and adventurers to audiences around the world to share their unbelievable behind-the-scenes stories and stunning images and video—live onstage.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony. The orchestra will not perform on this program.

National Geographic Live — When Women Ruled the World

2018-2019 National Geographic >

When it comes to women in power, we’ve come a long way … right? Join Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, for a look at a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. Often neglected in the history books, these women were considered exceptions to the rule, political pawns in a patriarchal society. But their power and influence is undeniable. Cleopatra used her sexuality — and her money — to build alliances with warlords of the Roman empire. Neferusobek was the first woman to definitively take the title of King. Nefertiti is known more for her beauty than for bringing a fractured Egypt together. What can we learn from how these women ruled? Dr. Cooney shares some illuminating answers.

National Geographic Live — Untamed

National Geographic >

Filmmaker Filipe DeAndrade believes animals saved his life, and he wants to return the favor. Raised in poverty, surrounded by addiction and abuse, he felt voiceless. He related to animals, because they too were voiceless, and he fell in love with photography as a way to tell their stories. Now the star of Nat Geo’s digital series, Untamed, he works to save the animals that saved him. In this presentation, DeAndrade will talk about finding your passion in life and living it with intent. Along the way, he’ll bring you face to face with lions, sharks, snakes, jaguars, jumping spiders, whales and one of the rarest animals in the world — a hawk moth caterpillar that resembles a venomous snake.

National Geographic Live — Capturing The Impossible

National Geographic >

For extreme filmmaker Bryan Smith, the line between going for it and going too far is often blurry — especially when you’re exploring the earth’s most remote environments. In this edge-of-your-seat presentation, Bryan shows you what it means to adventure with purpose, and why he believes the best expeditions are the ones with a healthy chance of failure. He’s faced machete-wielding locals in Papua New Guinea, suffered frostbite during the first-ever ice climb of Niagara Falls, explored the South Pacific’s deepest canyons and scaled North America’s tallest mountains to bring you behind the scenes and capture the impossible.

National Geographic Live — Wild Seas, Secret Shores

National Geographic >

To Thomas Peschak, sharks aren’t a reason to get out of the water. They’re a reason to get in. Following his lifelong obsession, he’s found himself paddling kayaks alongside great white sharks in South Africa, swimming among hundreds of one-ton manta rays in the Maldives, and keeping pace with massive whale sharks in the Arabian Sea. In this talk, the marine biologist-turned-National Geographic Photographer takes audiences around the world with his award-winning images and his engaging take on the ocean’s charismatic creatures.
