THE SCIENCE PROJECT
Blurring the boundaries between art and science, Everett Dance Theatre
explores time, space, motion, and the process of experimentation and
discovery undertaken by artists and scientists alike.
Prisms capture narrow bands of white light and split the beams into rainbows
while one man is sandwiched between two beds of nails and another uses the
kinetic energy of a karate chop to break a board over him.
They balanced on seesaws, set pendulums swaying, dropped
weights from ladders, slid cups down chutes and let balls
roll over their bodies. - The New York Times
In a fascinating collaboration, Everett worked for two years with a
high-school physics teacher and his students to blend science with art.
After another year of research, improvisation, and collaging, the company
produced The Science Project, and has continued to engage audiences with its
unique--often unorthodox--blend of dance and theater.
Come experience what the Village Voice called "serious playfulness", and the
Toronto Star qualified as "the best science lesson of all."
After the Providence run of the Science Project, Everett will tour the show to the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, in April 2005.
