science x theatre was an amazing event that blended science and art. Thanks to everyone who came to see it! Photos coming soon!
March 11 @ 14:00 & 19:00
March 12 Sunday @15:00
When science meets theatre, expect big ideas, big bangs, and maybe even some laughs.
How do you act out nanoscale Brownian motion? Can you fit a model of a satellite on stage? What kind of costume conveys 'artificial life'? Actors and playwrights will face questions like these in March when they embark on "science x theatre", a bold experiment of the Yokohama Theatre Group and Nerd Nite Tokyo. Science will be the message, but theatre is the medium: what are the implications of science, how does it affect real people, and what are these experiments and discoveries all about?
This show emerges from discussions between scientists and theatre teams, who have one week to create their plays, blending fact and fiction. The scientific presentations will precede each play when they are performed on March 11 and 12.
Sai Maddala & Mochinosha Puppet Company will explore the hidden world of nano materials like carbon nanotubes, graphene, and millenia-old Egyptian inks.
Lana Sinapayen & Taran Nibakins will puzzle over why it's hard to decide if an artificial intelligence is actually intelligent or not.
Stefania Soldini & 1740g will recount the story of Japan's Hayabusa 2 probe and its dangerous journey to and from the Ryugu asteroid.
