Nikola Tesla and the Mother of Invention


Saturday, August 14: 7pm PST

Tesla was a brilliant inventor. She also had a son.

Electricity pioneer Nikola Tesla’s role model was an uneducated, illiterate housewife–his mother Djuka. Djuka tinkered, experimented, and invented–making a science out of the domestic sphere. This musical exploration of Djuka and her most famous invention–her son Nikola–tells the story of the magnetic push and pull of family bonds, the branching currents of freedom and choices, and balancing surprising sources of energy.

Runtime: 60 minutes

Tickets: $10-$30 sliding scale

Advance reservations are required for this reduced-capacity indoor event, which is limited to 50 attendees maximum. Both fully vaccinated performers will be unmasked during the show for the sake of clarity, but we ask all audience members to please wear masks inside the building when not eating or drinking so we can all do our best to keep one another safe.

Matheatre will be donating 10% of ticket proceeds to the Malala Fund–working for a world where every girl can learn and lead.
