"Jack Lowe and his ensemble continue to fire imaginations and push boundaries", The Metro
This workshop follows A Conversation in Science and Contemporary Performance held on 19 September 2012 at The Arts Catalyst chaired by Vivienne Glance which a variety of theatre practitioners and scientists attended. The conversation brought to light the array of diverse theatre practices that are engaging with science and the need to develop an informal meeting group to share ideas and methodologies around the mergence of these two disciplines.
Part 2 will take a more practical step towards practitioners discussing/ dissecting ideas and the difficulties in producing ambitious theatre with a critical discourse in our relationship with science.
