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.

On Friday, March 18th, 2005, at 8pm, Everett Dance Theatre will present the 2005 premiere of it's innovative dance theatre piece, The Science Project, at the Carriage House Stage in Providence (at 7 Duncan Avenue), followed by a special reception with the artists. Chairing the event will be internationally renowned children's author/illustrator, David Macaulay. Proceeds will benefit the professional and community work of Everett Dance Theatre and the Carriage House Stage and School. For reservations, call 401-831-9479.

The Science Project will be performed four more times at the Carriage House, on Saturdays, March 19 and 26, and Friday and Saturday, April 1 and 2. (See left sidebar for details.)
