Dance Engineered: Science and Art Intersect

By Philadelphia Science Festival (other events)

2 Dates Through Apr 22, 2017

From inspiration to execution—art is a science, and science is an art. Explore the intersection between creative expression and scientific exploration through this stunning performance of N o t h i n g T h a t I s N o t T h e r e from Nora Gibson Contemporary Ballet. Blurring the line between art and science, this 90-minute work was created in part during a residency at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center in Tivoli, New York, and is the culmination of a physics-based study by an aerospace mechanical engineer and a choreographer. This work was made with support from Drexel University and the collaboration with Dr. Leslie Lamberson's Dynamic Multifunctional Materials Laboratory.

The interactive display will run from 7pm - 8pm and the concert will begin at 8pm*
