…then check out “Everything and Nothing”, part of the Otley Science Festival, tomorrow evening at the Courthouse in Otley.
Thu 17 Nov, 7.30pm
What shapes could the universe be? Does it have an edge? Is it infinite? Intent on creating a map of the universe using complex mathematics, the Everyman Explorer encounters aviator Amelia Earhart who was lost in her 1937 attempt to circumnavigate the globe. The pair find themselves in the company of an order-obsessed librarian who isn’t quite what he seems, in a time-warped universe controlled by an old radio.
A playful encounter between sound, image, text and mathematics, presented by multi-disciplinary company the19thstep, devised by composer Dorothy Ker and sculptor Kate Allen with performers Lucy Stevens, Chris Brannick and sound artist Kelcey Swain.
“Pretty fabulous … a fantastic way of linking ideas about maths and drama … really captured the imagination”
“It was really rather excellent … a really good story and thought provoking … atmospheric … evocative”
“At most events [at the science festival] I didn’t learn much new … but at this I did. ” (Comment from a Physicist with PhD)
The Everything and Nothing Workshop
…with topologist Dr Katie Steckles will follow on immediately after the performance. It is suitable for all ages and will unravel the mathematics of the Poincaré conjecture. The workshop will last approximately 45 minutes.
Free entry with performance ticket.
