Organized and presented by San Diego State University Professor of Music Jozefius Vaatierz Rattus (earthling name (e.n.) Joseph Martin Waters), this years’ theme expands the NWEAMO 2013 festivals’ exploration of basic mammalian emotions with a focus on the emotion of PLAY & PLAYFULNESS.

The music festival will be presented in two locations over two evenings. The first evening takes place at the 1st Unitarian Universalist church in Hillcrest, 8:00 PM, Saturday, March 22nd. 

It features virtuosic performances of new works around the theme of “Play & Playfulness” by pre-eminent San Diego musicians of the SWARMIUS ensemble together with NYC-based pianist Peripeteticus (earthling name (e.n.) Geoffrey Burleson) & violinist Maribela (e.n. Mary Rowell).
This second evenings presentation will be held in the Heikoff Dome Theater, and this will allow Full dome visuals along with live music by a stellar array of talented individuals.

NWEAMO 2014 –  CIRCUS FROM ANOTHER PLANET: PLAY, PLAYERS, PLAYING & PLAYFULNESS 
We are hardwired to play. All mammals and birds play. Play binds us with our fellow creatures in an exuberant celebration of pure life . Play is essential for our survival, our health, and our well-being. It is one of the seven primary process emotions – so distinct and primeval that the brain circuit of play lights up the fMRI, like a constellation in the night sky. When we play, we laugh: Dogs laugh, monkeys laugh, Rats laugh , parrots laugh (and dance). We need to laugh and play as much as possible.
