It is the year 3,000,458,000 BC! The Earth’s surface is a molten mass of volcanic islands and undulating waves! The atmosphere is a choking fog lit by a dim red sun! And the mighty waters of the world are inhabited only by rocks, sand, salt, more rocks, a little silt maybe, and the great society of salt-eating yeasts – yes, yeasts! – that were the worlds very first life form!
Yeast Nation (the triumph of life), arguably the world’s first bio-historical musical, premiered at The Perseverance Theater in Juneau, Alaska in 2007.
All hail the yeasts!
