Show celebrating art and science

Dancing to a science beat.
Dancing to a science beat.

A free dance and theatre show, exploring physics and technology, and demonstrating how they intertwine with arts, will be staged at NUIG next Thursday and Friday, November 15 and 16, as part of National Science and Technology Week.

This multimedia piece, NanoDance, will explore the science of the very small, with performance and projection devised by visiting choreographer Deidre Cavazzi from Saddleback College in California.

The performance will be preceded by a short talk by Dr Jessamyn Fairfield from the School of Physics, NUIG. Jessamyn is involved in the Bright Club project – this is a variety night for lateral minds, where researchers become comedians for a night.

Physics, technology, and wonder are at the heart of NanoDance which will be staged at 6pm on Thursday and Friday, November 15 and 16, in the O’Donoghue Centre at NUIG.

This work is supported by the Institute of Physics and the Galway Science and Technology Festival. Tickets are free and available at
